Attai Chen 
Matter in Perspective

This series is primarily focused on multiple perspectives; the way we perceive and record what surrounds us. Attai was inspired by the perception of space and perspective of Pre-Renaissance painters: their creation of ‘incorrect’ images that lacked or ignored the technique of the vanishing point, which was developed later. They managed to evoke a sense of distorted movement in their work. Because of the multiple points of view they use, we feel we are looking at a body of independent multidimensional entities, engaged in a bonding process. To Attai, this representation is quite realistic – it offers a humbler way of looking at the world around us and our place in it.
