Dreams are often described as something absolute. I think of dreams as an idolatry, shaped from society’ s expectations.
In other words, dreams are relative existences that broke out from the shells of absoluteness. Nature, in fact, is like a dream. Through time, it essentially teaches us the existence of absoluteness. What fogs around it are society and era, which are also absolute.
I think photography is a medium that speaks the viewpoint of society’ s fragments and multiplied in the layers of the photographer’ s will and intent.This medium itself is made possible in the relativity. Meanwhile, the theme of this should constantly be portrayed with absoluteness.
Which explains why photography, the portrayal of realism, is adequate for this project.
I controlled the lens to capture a layer of fog that surrounds nature, the representation of absoluteness. Using an old lens and by applying the blur like an impressionist art, the absolute plants are expressed in a way that they sink into the relative fog.
