In an age defined by technology with its foundational core of scientific beliefs,
where does one find a place for a dream, a myth, a lyrical fantasy?
Prasert Yodkaew confronts his audience with design sketches for unfathomable
devices, detailed catalogues of otherworldly creatures in motion, threedimensional models of flying implements, decompositions of traditional
architecture interspersed with biological specimens. The blend of mostlyWestern science-and-engeneering drawing with mostly-Thai fantastic and
decorative elements highlights once again the many cultural variables involved
in the game.
The artist claims that he has no intention to provide reliable answers, but rather
prefers to stimulate the viewer in a Zen-like manner with his paradoxes of style.
What realizations shall the viewer find?
