Loda Choo is a photographic artist and writer. she was an editor of Architecture Book company and after self-studying photography for about 10 years, she started making photographic art and, is one of the Conceptual photographic artists working with common objects like fruits, cups, foods, flowers, etc. She describes her art as a reflection of the world where we are living.


In this series, she uses taking photos as a tool for her to study how we see the world, what the world is like, and so what the real things are in the world. This series is her ongoing project, and she categorized the theme by three; space, time, and something. But also, she is showing how incomplete the standards we rely on to understand the world.


-Space

By using the mirror, she is showing how infinite the space is, but also how finite the space we perceive is. She creates two worlds; one is through the lens and the other is in the mirror. Expressing two worlds, she keeps asking if we can imagine beyond what we see through our own lens.


-Time

By using long-exposure time, she is showing the objects like apple seem like the same during the time, which is the point of her. Every single moment’s things are different because every moment is different. Even though we can’t see the difference between one second-ago and after, everything in the world is different by the time. she is showing the time in the photography, and showing the meaning of the time in the world. She said, “we always, literally always lost the time”


She is saying “There is no absolute reality. There is only 'believed' reality” in her art.
