Oil on Canvas
In Ming, Song isolates the robot eyes that form the focus of the Entropy series of portraits. Here, instead, they float separately as two orbs of varied size and scale. Yet their segregation from the frame of the face serves to prompt closer reflection. Greater attention is paid to the reflections of light and objects scattered across the surface of the metallic irises. A viewer, in turn, is compelled to reflect more closely on the act of looking itself, and in so doing, transforms into the abstract bodies reflected within the suspended eyes.
