I find the Cambodian Trees stupefying! The projection concept of Clement is very fascinating and his artistic technique makes the photograph look bizarre. It is a clever idea to mix up reality and projection in an art piece. I was enthralled because this picture attracted me to gaze on the trees for long periods of time.
About the Cambodian Trees
Clement’s projection offers a new perception of images in space. Clement has created hybrid spaces which when attached with the photograph can confuse reality and projection as well as space and surface. Clement is trying to show with his Cambodian Trees that enigmatic and poetic character stimulates the whimsicality in every spectator. Clement is trying to depict the Cambodian culture through this art piece. These night projections effectively convey the enchantment which resonates with Cambodia’s view of the world.
