In the age of information technology where digital media rules the world, mediate communication has been significantly broaden our horizons of realities. In a flash, we could be informed about what is happening on the other side of the world at this very moment.
Unfortunately, what digitally appear before your eyes does not always conform to what really happens in physical realm. What is called “the truth” is not a stable concept rooted firmly in our consciousnesses. In contrast, it is a stream of ideas that could be shifted, manipulated and distorted by the mechanism of media. It is a collective of selected facts that shape our attitudes towards things around us. Therefore, the individuals in this epoch have diverse comprehensions of realities.
“a Yellow Ellipse in a Red Square” is the first episode of “The Alchemy”, a series of experiment in visual art exploring how digital media and means of mass communication could possibly form a new perception of reality by employing optical apparatus as a main tool to convey the idea.
