Below is the write up accompanying the work:
Reacting to a world now ensconced in technology, Li-Hill attempts to decipher the nest we have built for ourselves. Finding bridges within many despairing parts of culture, he blends the lines between antiquity and modernity, abstract and representational, to create something wholly new. Emulating a frozen explosion or intense force, movement becomes the central idea conveyed, where one can lolyze the moments. Pulling from sources such as Eadweard Muybridge and Italian futurists, a scientific lens is applied to this sense of motion, yet through subtle allegory a critical view is expressed. References to Icarus and Narcissist can be seen in this work as a figure falls into a reflected pool. Our society’s infatuation, dependency and faith in technology becomes a cycle of self-perpetuating motion with an under current of cataclysm.
