Re-Touch


Visual sense has become more primary than other senses since the world has never been more imagerized and virtualized to date. With the popularization of touch screens, our “touch” becomes the secondary to our optical sense. In Re-Touch, we tend to “re-touch” the rationalist, formalist and industrialized touch screens with an emotional and sensual way by using a hand scanner - a reflection on the paradoxical relationship of the virtual and the real. This new type of touch makes the images on the screen almost unpredictable and unrecognizable, which also challenges the disciplined way of looking at the world. Then, these hand scanned images are made into irregular and various shapes of sculptures in order to prompt new ways to look at images. At the same time, the installation of the image sculptures in the space is focused on combining mundane life moments and unexpected places in the gallery to challenge the viewers.
