Comic and photography are by no means have become a usual and popular culture, especially among youth. Two emerging artistsboth work on different artistic forms, however, both engage in the re-interpretation of the plain/2D media via the access of new media or technology. Para Site has the pleasure to present their solo projects at our new premises. They both explore ways of re/viewing images and questions the notions of creation, illusion and revelations. We are inviting the viewer to heighten their imagination and explore the many possibilities of art itself.
ambition is to challenge the 2 dimensional boundaries of comics, in order to examine the narrative order and the interrelation among texts and images.
A 2-dimensional comic sphere is re-presented into the 3-dimensional gallery space through the compound of spatial reality and. Beyond the horizon of the imagination, audiences only read or experience the comics, instead, they are invited to re/view and contemplate the meaning of comics. Facilitated by the interaction between piece and audience interpretation.

He is excited to capture the eternal moment from images and motion, to freeze and visualize such time movement. Works that are exhibited are the – like images of colour strip manipulation based on the scanning mechanism of a domestic scanner.
