In producing my artistic installation piece titled "Ready-Human Products", I was inspired and motivated by the tremendous technological and industrial advances and changes evident all over our society that created a set of new values in the pattern of thoughts/personalities/lifestyles of the majority of people - a worship of material possessions/services or materialism.
This upsurge materialism was in large part created by the pervasive make-believe advertisements in our society that stirred up new interests in the masses towards images or symbols of different levels of material tastes and success characterized by new exciting, showy material possessions/services and the resultant potential pitfalls and deception that could destroy the sanctity and meaning of life in the end.
Based on the above considerations, my work is meant to remind
our society of the potential pitfalls and wicked exploitation
or manipulation in the name of industrial and commercial progress
which is often willing to sacrifice, so to speak, any parts of
human body and mind to realize its objectives. My work carries
three-dimensions printmaking productions comprising the images
of various human organs such as eyes, noses, mouths, brains etc.
