Image of the Original


‘Image of the Original’ presents a piece of paper which reflects its own image on itself. I photograph a piece of paper and print its image on the same piece of paper to create an aesthetic form that integrates two different dimensional perceptions. The actual piece of paper belongs to 3D whereas its photographic image, 2D. The two dimensions exist separately in our perception, each with a different function. 2D is a conceptual space which does not physically exist in reality. On the other hand, 3D is a real space where we live and sense objects. It is to open up the perceptional boundary between the two different dimensions, reality and imagination, by combining the original with its image.
