Chan Suk On likes taking photographs. Sometimes, her camera needs to be fixed. The maintenance fees are very expensive. She has the urge to crack down on this black box of her camera. What's the secret inside the camera? She used a lot of strength to loosen the screws to satisfy her curiosity. She discovered the small parts inside and revealed the unknown things hidden in the camera. There is no connection between parts and parts. They are not geometric but are composed of irregular shapes based on different functions. Loose pieces present when the object has no functions, does it still have value? When every small part is disassembled, like an anatomical picture, and has no function. Its beauty naturally emerges. These little parts are in her collection, and she reorganized them to make this artwork. She used top shots and arranged them carefully on white background. This arrangement is simple and neat
. It refers to external incompleteness, irregular shape, simplicity, minimalism, without too much modification, and the pursuit of inner peace and indifference. Untie the parts and deconstruct them, let the objects display and breathe naturally, and appreciate the craftsmanship of the creator.
