City of London


Using needle as my pen, the colorful threads as the ink, joined pieces of self-textured cotton cloths as the surface for my drawing of the ‘City of London’ – a city, which I find highly phenomenal, mesmerizing, addictive, seductive, an international hotspot with incomparable absorbency and full of hybrid identities. The anomalousness of this drawing itself represents the city’s extra-ordinary materiality, ever changing beautiful complex structure, its original-artificiality, unpredictability, transiency of existences and simultaneously intensified sensuousness through the addition of the fourth dimension (the smell of alcohol) to the piece, trying to satisfy the olfactory sense of the locals.
