In the Eyes of the Beholder by Teo Cai Yun

We had Teo Cai Yun‘s work bookmarked since the BOOKSHOW last week-end. The photography major from Nanyang Technological University, School of Art, Design and Media has a knack for staging interventions and turning the outcome of her projects into weird and wonderful pictures.

In the Eyes of the Beholder
sees Cai Yun do some sinister things with fruit. As she explains “it all started out with researching on the food cosmetic filtering process whereby suppliers and farmers filter out ugly fruits and keeping the good-looking ones. It made me rethink the standards of beauty and that it applies to fruits as well without us knowing. Using the idea of plastic surgery, I fused fruits with weird things to create according to my personal standards, and insert the slightly sadistic part of my personality.”

I just hope that stitched up banana doesn’t haunt my dreams …
