The existence of the individual is defined by the space around the being. If a new system governs one’s ground, the occupancy would be defined accordingly. Here, I welcome you to Flat Space, a carefully constructed territory that questions the innate law and hierarchy of an embedded space.
This alternate universe mimics our well-perceived residency, the Earth, by including all the basic elements in the neighborhood. However, Flat Space presents an unusual sighting of ordinary objects placed in a common environment. One can recognize the materials yet the physical forces are carefully controlled in this curated space, allowing this alternate universe to create its own tension and order. The residing subject matters are also free to explore and question the innate law of physicality without any perceived restraints.
By defying the very laws of nature, this part of the world offers a surreal yet cathartic experience to the viewers. Although the existence of the fully constructed environment is only confirmed by a series of photographs, the sightings are captured as a form of evidence towards a potential utopia. Here, this platform aims to become an outlet from reality and succumbs the viewers to a visually immersive experience. By offering both of the ordered and the boundless, the collectives are hopeful to meet new audiences to enter their part of the universe.
