What if the world is fake


Un-commissioned | Professional

Why did you make this work:
This work was inspired by my questions to the world, which led to a fake impression.Many of questions were occurred by accident. At the beginning of the project, I recalled and collected the confusions I had for the world. When I was sorting out these miscellaneous talks, some fragmental images jumped out in my mind, I documented those images separately and made them part of the final work.

How was the illustration used:
This group of creation is a kind of innovation and exploration that I carry on. And it is also an important part of my portfolio. This artwork is mainly used as an artistic representation of the story and ideas I want to convey.

How did you make this work:
I also had special thoughts for the images composition. I did not want to limit them on graphic level. So I added different altitudes on my board, and drawings at the junctions. By doing so, I would like to highlight that the world we are at has multiple dimissions. Besides, I have done some further development in mediums such as clay and GIF animation.
