“This painting is part of my Disconnect series from 2015. It is a collection of paintings which offers moments to reflect on our current lifestyle and the ever persistent changes technology imposes on our living routines. In the series, I use headphones to represent technology devices, symbolizing our communication with each other. The lines and cables represent the invisible connection wireless communication camouflages. While technology is the nature of our era, it is still important to make time to disconnect and enjoy the natural beauty of our surroundings. This piece is trying to guide people away from the city, away from all the stress and technology, just to appreciate the beauty of nature.” - Hsin-Yao Tseng
