Distance Travelled

Artist statement

Distance Travelled is a project that I had done during my artist-in-residence at Centre d'Art i Creació de Ses Voltes, Palma de Mallorca, Spain, in March 2015. 

This series of work is a documentary of my walk between Binissalem train station and the bus stop of this village. Somebody told me that this walk should be around 10 minutes, I followed the one-way road for cars and eventually I had used more than an hour to arrive at the bus stop. I was bewildered and had lots of doubt during the walk.

Through this series of work, I would like to question our perception of distance. It could be physical and mental; as well as subjective and objective. Indeed, the interpretation of distance is highly associated with our experience and expectation. Therefore, different people would have diverse notions of distance.
