Little Scenes│Shantel Liao，solo exhibition
God created man in His own image, then the heavens and the earth. People created the reproduction in their own image, another earth. Although the propose of miniature set is to copy, to keep the selected moments, the reason we see them real might based on our own experience but not the thought of people who actually made the set. We named what we see by emotions; tend to make the connection between objective scenes and memories inside. We take everything we see. Therefore, it makes no difference between the world we created and the one we lived except the size of things. Over there, they are living silently and waiting to be seen just like us. Through the lens, the only difference between the man side and miniature side will no longer exist. People will live in the world fully ruled by them at the end.
