This is a work consisting of seven small electronic screens and a glass screen for projection imaging. The artist uses geometric shapes as a medium to present what she sees as the geometry of everyday life. In this work we can see a shift from two-dimensional to faux three-dimensional, thus reflecting the evolution of current social phenomena.
In each of the two-dimensional animations, everyday scenes are shown, such as the alternation of day and night, crowded lifts and geometric shapes representing different personalities. This reveals a vivid geometric world. Subsequently, from the world of geometric planes, it moves on to the next abstract faux three-dimensional generated image, and through the imaging of the glass screen, an unknown future is revealed.
Keno Zhang was born in China, and has studied graphic design and visual communication in the UK and France. She is currently pursuing a Master of Arts degree in Visual Arts at Hong Kong Baptist University. Influenced by abstract art and graphic design, she has a deep fascination with geometric shapes and repetitive patterns. In particular, she has been inspired by Kandinsky whose works feature structure of points, lines, and planes, and exhibit a sense of melody that she finds rich and engaging. This inspiration led her to realize that our world is also made up of various geometric shapes, and she began exploring the relationship between geometry and the real world, attempting to recreate it with geometric shapes.
