"My gaze is trained on the transformations that are taking place around me. I believe that travelling to new places is a way to maintain a temporary distance from the suffocating turmoil of urban society."

About The Artwork

Fading Boundaries

Digital Image

Fading Boundaries examines, in the visual language of stillness and silence, the relationship between contemporary civilization and the natural environment. The advancement of industry and technology has overlooked the proper regard for the ecological realm, the face of our earth radically reshaped through accumulative technological progress at the expense of the natural world. The degradation of the environment has resulted in major impact on our ways of life, with climate change, for instance, deeply affecting both human and animal populations. Technological progress in Sripetch’s visual world, however, remains imbricated with, and secondary to, the inexorable life of the earth’s ecological systems. The artist remarks of his practice that “my gaze is trained on the transformations that are taking place around me. I believe that travelling to new places is a way to maintain a temporary distance from the suffocating turmoil of urban society. My subjective point of view is narrated through the physical experience of a spatial shift that generates curiosity, exploring what “taking root” and departure mean, and the traces that we humans leave behind.”
