Detention of the Trauma
The photography series was compiled by assorting my images of landscapes and buildings related to historical trauma, which were further compiled into a map. Centered around the cognitive map theory, this work codes and decodes space, repositioning and connecting the images captured throughout my travels. The map explores the identification and transformation of historical trauma, overlapping and bridging the senses of the micro with the macro, the interior with the exterior. By doing so, this work constructs a space that memorizes trauma and inspects how trauma is embedded deep within the consciousness and affects generations.
Memory, landscape, and architectural space are all intertwined in these works. By Exploring the hidden traces in landscapes and architectural spaces, we realize that the unlived experiences, fading wounds of history, and its seemingly diminishing impacts, all continue to haunt us through space and time.
