Beyond Hearing is a photographic series to display private emotion and thoughts in journeys.
Lena has wandered alone around ordinary areas where she has traveled, thus far, she tries to capture the moment that look unfamiliar through lenses in order to perceive the space-time into pure-emotion in her own. It can be 'defamiliarization' with photography. Those places are ordinary and mundane places to natives. The aim of this work is to let it unfamiliar to even people to live there, including people who have never been there.
Beyond Hearing is also an attempt to display unnamed moment in photography. Human-being is a linguistic creature but there are various moments which cannot explained by words. Words such as empathy, sympathy and appreciation arise not only from human vocal language. The sense of sight conducts to derive appreciation without words, furthermore, it also can be named a part of language. Preferably, human can communicate in silence sometimes. This is on extension line of the belief that visual art can extend understanding by sympathy. Inside loneliness, human-being recognises its fate and it relates to deep understanding that is all of us are lonely.
In this reason, all photographs are taken by only film process.
