《海一瞥 Sea Glance》
郭嘉羚 Ring, Chia-ling KUO
If I glance at the sea, what will I see? a whole surface of the sea, ocean waves or a shimmer of sunlight?
When I moved my body, I simultaneously pressed the shutter button by means of burst mode shooting. I later used digital image processing techniques to stitch the captured pictures together and merge image of the landscape part (the embankment, the beach, the sky). Another part of image (sea waves) was stitched together with obvious overlapping areas in between each photo, which were like evidences of duration as a result of the body movement and the shutter speed. The precisely focus image of tetrapods (concrete blocks used in coastal engineering) in the centre implied its shallow focus different from entire image and pointed out the spatial dimension of the photographer and the environment.
