I believe no species in nature are independent existences and are required to experience life in mutual dialogues; this state also applies to human beings. With this notion as the starting point, I manifest this lively interaction through practices.
My work mostly examines the relationship between nature and human beings. Combining photography and sculpture, I intend to show the interactions of forms and materials. Imaginations, experiences, and memories are beckoned to annotate sensations of the present.
In my practice, images are important elements since they mainly involve different experiences and perceptions from both viewers and myself. I recognise them as living materials while trying to sculpt the space in photographs, which then become perceptual and invisible mediums. The notion of the space span from physical to abstract, from tangible to perceptual, from solid to fluid. It is always changing as experiences and time engage in.
This image, an exploration into the notion of “Align”, is composed by materials and objects that I often use in my sculpture. I brought plenty of materials together and tried to recreate a scenery similar to natural surroundings as a personal response to landscape. Placing three dimensional objects into a photography studio, I investigate the relationship between objects, forms, colours and materials in a two dimensional medium. In addition, I examine the interaction between what we see from the surface of an image and what an image can lead us to with our perception and imagination as its content.
Sean Tseng (b. 1995 in Taipei) lives and works in London. He primarily works with photography and sculpture. He explores the interwoven materiality of objects such as building materials and natural materials like stones, and is researching the relationship between urban area and nature.
