Urban Seabed

‘Urban Seabed’ is an installation that uses the abstraction of the ordinary into oceanic projection which encompasses mental space as subtleties, ambiguities and resonance. Its inspiration comes from my perceptive experience of noise in the city. Land and city as opposite to sea and space. Merging field-recorded soundscape into my perception of the sea, the body of art transcends traffic noise of a city into marine scenario embraced by echoes of sea waves. It elevates viewer to a mental clarity of distance - a meditative state where viewer’s perception of our city reorients. ‘Urban Seabed’ suggests the sublimity of our mentality in an empirical sense, which is also my artistic pursuit.
