A Photo of 14

Photography installation, 2016

Documentary and inkjet print on semi-smooth paper

As a daily occurrence of high frequency, taking pictures has been like walking, whose concern is as simple as from A to B, while the rest has become subconscious behaviors. Developed technology and the rapid pace of life have caused such a blind spot. Daily photographic behavior is also like daily perception which prioritizes efficiency. By this work, the artist was eager to detect the contingency and inevitability behind the daily photographic behaviors. She broke down the most important 14 steps of producing a photo from forming the conception to the display. As the "rule maker", she invited 14 photographers to control each step respectively. And, she recorded the whole production process into a documentary.
