heading sea thru series

It is an interplay of optical illusion and physical mass where Ying interacting with Yang, solid complimenting void and optical illusion confronting physical matter. Multiple changes of colour reflection created by different sources of lights can be perceived as the viewer moves around or view from different angles.
The meaning it convey : Duel aspects of the world. Confronting yet complimenting. (Why SEA-Thru? The idea came through when Dr Choong moved into his own house in SEA Park, P.J.)
这一系列反映的是视觉幻觉和物理实体的相依共存的视觉现象。
贯通系列是视觉和物理的互动,是阴阳的互应,是幻觉和实体的抗衡,是实和空的 互补的一种互相牽制互应的创作手法。观赏者可以从作品的四周环走或上下的多个角度去发现和欣赏在不同光源中塗绘的和反射而呈現出來的各种色彩和造型的变化奧妙。它所表达的是关于世间的两种相对的现象,它們既对抗又互补。贯通系列是锺博士迁入东南 (S.E.A.) 花園的住宅時所体现的理念創作。
