In Situ is a multidisciplinary photo-based project that visually represents the truth of human identity in social life. I employed both psychoanalytic theories about human cognitive ego/identity and my personal experiences as references to re-examine how individuals consider their identities among others.

In this project, I intend on freezing the moment to monumentalizing between space, time and human postures, as a means of self-exploring Between artist, subjects, and viewers, to make a new dialogue in self-discourse through the lens of others, both personal and social. As an examination dichotomy floating discourse self-discourse, In Situ will investigate the meaning of truth through the moment of the false.
