Wong Wai-Yin

In order to train a biased perspective

 

The photographer was learning the one-point perspective theory in his photos. The placement of the characters was based on the principle of the golden ratio. He was so enthusiastic just like the audience entering the art space, with the vision of looking at art, and that may be a biased perspective to look into the world.

 

Some symbols that make you find yourself oblique

 

A writer mentioned that the shipwreck is the most unpopular subject matter in Art. I don't know why I find that the shipwreck shares the same message behind the religious painting. The shipwreck tells people that life is small and nature is vast. Every being has to be humble. If shipwreck was the origin of art, the whole set of symbols and signifiers that we agree with will be different.
