Life After Death

Eat Fast Food Fast

In this series of work, Justin uses stop-motion photography to capture the movement of appearance and behavior, based on the overloaded of digital paradigms.

By looking at the pleasure and displeasure on selfie portraiture, the artist stands to question on how one behaves or response emotionally with circumstances, mood and relationship with social media.

The artist is trying to explore multiple selfie shots with a desire to over-share shots, in unintended blurry parts that allow people to rethink on how selfie might construct our behavior unconsciously, with today’s advancement of technology gadgets we are living in.

在这一系列作品中,Justin使用定格动画的形式用摄影去捕捉外观和行为的运动的基础上,超载数字范式。

通过查看快乐和不快的自拍,艺术家站到一个怎样的行为或情绪反应与环境,情绪和社交媒体的关系问题。

艺术家试图探索多种自拍镜头与过度份额拍摄的愿望,在意想不到的模糊部分,让人们重新思考如何自拍照在不知不觉中可能构建我们的行为,有技术的小工具,我们生活在今天的进步。
