The shore beyond

Humans, sharks and the ocean. In this work, the three elements are reconstructed and combined together into a collage form of specimen. Once it turns, the three elements start to interweave and spin, generating an everchanging reflection, a world of fantasy, which evokes the origin of life. The fragmented pieces become a kaleidoscope. As long as we remind ourselves that we are part of the nature, and we are all connected, the path will unfold itself with respect and love for all lives on earth.
