Epson ultra giclee print, hahnemuhle photo rag baryta
Edition of 3 + 1AP

Take a snap of the TV screen.A moment without meaning nor narration was captured.

1.From distance, it looks like ocean wave, an eternal theme of nature. In fact, it is just a splash of artificial pond.
2.Observe closely,you'll find this is not a scene from reality.Instead, it's a retake of TV screen that mimics the reality.
3.What the photo shows, is not water itself in three-dimention,rather, it's a transferred two-dimentional image which is already comprehended.
4.When you get even closer, the eyesight will be interrupted by colourful spots irregularly spread all around the picture.Dazed and confused, you cannot figure out the virtual ocean wave.However, it is actually an image error caused by real water spraying onto the TV screen.

Thus,a paradox,both natural and artificial, realistic and mimic, three-dimentional and two-dimentional, virtual and actual, exists in a way of self-accordance,contradiction and expansion.It blends the cognitive dimention with a sudden gust of "centraliaztion", and becomes a image of great chaos.

Summary and Research Target of  Cognitive Studies-T
When these transcendental moments are recorded, which have no plot, no story, no attitudes, they will be restored and released from the illustrated and emotional functions forced by videos from media.  Right now, what are they explaining, and expressing?
Perhaps what they show is just an objective presentation, as stone-like reality of their own.
