Room Portraits by Menno Aden
Through challenging camera angles Menno Aden abstracts most familiar actual living environments and public interiors into flattened two-dimensional scale models. A camera that the artist installed on the ceiling of various rooms takes pictures downwards of the interiors. The resulting images lay out space in symmetrical compositions that look like assemblages stripped off any kind of objectivity. The views into private homes and secret retreats bring up associations of the ubiquitous observation camera. The notion of surveillance is systematically played out by the artist to hint at society’s voyeuristic urge that popular culture has made mainstream.
Khi còn nhỏ nghĩ rằng hạnh phúc chính là muốn gì được nấy.
Lớn lên rồi mới biết được hạnh phúc chính là tranh đấu mới có được. Thứ bạn càng muốn bạn lại càng không có được.
Đến khi về già mới hiểu được hạnh phúc không phải là người khác cho mình, mà chính là đến từ trong tâm tưởng của bản thân. Cho đến khi nào học được sự thay đổi trong cách nhận thức của bản thân thì mới được hạnh phúc.
