Why moving? Mobility is an act of survival, surviving from the geographical boundary of your-self, territory, and boundary that prevent you from encountering the others.

I have always obsessed and desired to the place which is not ‘here’, moving is just simply wanting yourself just to be in another place, wherever it is. It is the temptation, the feeling when you are moving, encounter new places, discover new things, new insight of the world. This present place and time is boring, the people keep forcing me to do what they also do, the society keep forcing me to follow them, while movement offers me to always change and adapt to different challenging place and situation.

At the time when I am here, at the present time and at the present place, photography helps me to re-visit spatio-temporal place. It just like a time and teleportation machine which enables me to visit certain place and time at a very specific—not only memories in the past but also predictable memories in the future. It is a device to create imageries of fictional place based on real physical place. These photographs record and process them into a set of imageries which I believe that these things are what I really see.
There are always fascinations and exhilaration of being somewhere you do not know. That tempting loneliness and strangeness, that quiet and solitude, that blowing wind, that breeze you can feel with your own skin, that grass which caress your feet, that busy or even quiet city that does not talk to you, that people who ignore but return your smile and answer your questions. I feel like it is just you and me, earth! It is just you and me, wind! It is just you and me, nature! It is just you and me, stranger, let us know each other!
