"I was a highschool student when I first got the polaroid camera. It was a fun gadget to play with friends, as it could quickly capture the moment.
This box set includes a selection of my polaroid works from 2005 until now.
I used to use the polaroid camera to do testing for my self portraits.
Polaroids are like a documentation of reality for me, as I make works that interconnect the present, past, and future.
When I look into their unique colours, I can see many beautiful colour particles like the universe - it gives me an unexplainable sense of exaltation."
