Liminal explores the landscape, society and architecture of France, and the disparity between the Eastern traditions of representation with those of the West. The work attempts to subvert France's colonial influence by representing the French landscape to evoke the social and cultural atmosphere of Vietnam. The circular, cyclic motion of each image reflects the interrelated nature of two cultures confronting each other, and then slowly melding. The images act as a storage space of multiple layers, or spheres of information, varying how each viewer relates, recalls or responds to cultural meaning. It becomes incumbent upon the viewer to engage with the layers of meaning, building a relationship between diverse cultural perspectives; questioning our ability to remain open to difference whilst exploring an unknown culture.
