made up of steel and
metal and our human body is made up of flesh and bones. Both can be
but on the other hand, can be very dangerous too.
--- Pauline Chan
Can our eyes really tell us the truth?
How we observe a person may often be superficial, not knowing the full picture nor what really is behind the facade.
We tend to use our past experiences as the frames of reference, passing judgments on what meet our eyes.
Are these the realities?
Around us, people often keep a watchful eye on how we look and how we perform. In Naked Eyes, I use plastic fabrics and wires to sew up numerous eye-balls and hang them together, keeping these eyes all over us, looking down on us and peeping into our lives.
With these eyes zeroing in on us all the time, there is a sense of helplessness growing within us. It is something that we can do nothing about, but does it really matter anyway?
--- Pauline Chan So Yee
The human skin as parts of our body reflects our inner physical situation. And the sensation on the skin is immediate and sharp. Through our skin we can recognize which get hurt in pain immediately.
Skin is like a personal journal. It is one of the things through which we experience everyday life.
Texture of plastic fabric which look-alike of human skin. The use of skin-like colour and the white colour of plastic fabrics create the fragment of our body. The distortion and reconstruction of the body fragment shown as a personal journal of my own experience.
