The hot topic is the pandemic of Corona Virus and yet there is an epidemic of litter building up. We saw the images of mounds of rubbish laying everywhere with shocking headlines. Still the amount of the rubbish is only going up. For a long time, I tried to avoid litter in my viewpoint. This time, however, the litter is not only lying around with their rubbish friends but is also presented in luxurious places with otherwise beautiful sceneries. This work aims to showcase nature in its true state. Rather than disguising or omitting the unsightly litter created by humans, Wan-Ru chooses to highlight it and asks the viewer to confront any feelings that may arise from this juxtaposition of natural and man-made forms.

With a focus on process and aesthetics, Wan-Ru has approached topics including dream, time, environment and manipulation of materials, light and photographic technologies, always questioning the possibility of the image.
