How I start with mixed media 

       一開始我也跟大家一樣,用數位相機拍照,修圖,以及輸出。雖然我很喜歡把我的作品拿在手上的感覺,但我總是覺得少了一點什麼。那時我還不確定是什麼,只覺得我跟我的作品有一個距離感。也許是因為用Photoshop我沒辦法透過雙手直接碰到我的作品吧?

       後來我去找我的前系主任,也和去年夏天的老師和同學討論過,他們都建議我直接用真正的物體後製在照片上。當我聽從他們建議後,我發現那層距離感不見了。我覺得我更能誠實的表達我自己,因為那種不完美,脆弱卻難以複製的過程,也是我的成長經歷。

       當然沒有反對用數位和Photoshop啦!只是現在在這個充斥數位的時代,手工給我一個溫暖的感覺。

When I get in touch photography, I use digital cameras, Photoshop, and do injeck print like everyone. Although I like to print my work out and look carefully at it, I feel something missing in my work. During those days, I didn't recognize what it is.I just had distance between my prints and I. Perhaps is that I cannot touch my images when I use Photoshop to edit them.

Being confused by the distance, I discussed with my ex-director, my instructor and classmates in 2015 summer, they all suggested me to use real objects to manipulate my prints. After I took their suggestions, I found that the distance was disappeared. Now I can express myself more honestly because those imperfect, fragile, but cannot be replicated processes are my life.

I'm not against to employ digital imaging for sure! Hand-made processes give me a warm feeling in this digital world.
