In the backdrop, the sunlight is exuberantly playing on East River. The golden glints on the water are shimmering so much so that they are blinding. In addition, the viewers get quite a nice cityscape. Yet, this is only one side of the perspective. Once they zoom out a little, they would discover a remote tree stump in the corner of desolate land. The stump gets lost in the view of joggers or pedestrians amidst the undisturbed view. By creating a temporary space within the frame, my work is to place the stump back into the viewers’ prospect.This tree stump is the embodiment of struggle for life after catastrophe. Therefore, it should not be overlooked. More so, it is never tobe forgotten.
