Suspension of Disbelief
The craft involved in producing fiction has fascinated me from an early age. The movie or photograph alone isn’t enough to convince me that it portrays reality, but a lot of work made me want it to be real. As a maker, I want to know how the film or photograph was made for the sake of appreciation but as a viewer, I want to invest myself in the content as much as possible to fit it into reality. The making of this body of work, Suspension of Disbelief, is an attempt to satisfy this dichotomy. In construction and content of this work, I have satisfied my intent to make in addition to the desire of my imagination to conceive fictional stories. Whether or not the participants of this exhibition find a balance or imbalance relies on their will to suspend their disbelief.
