Honorable Mention TOKYO-2017 Fine Art / Abstract


  • Photographer
    Alexvi Li

Alexvi captures those scratches on various parking walls from all over the world. These overlapped scratches are incidentally similar to the brushwork of expressionist oil paintings. However, the creators of these images only care about their cars. The scratches they unconsciously leave behind mixed with the color, wall textures and the subsequent repaired plasterwork create a visual art piece in the eyes of the photographer. Utilizing GPS (global satellite positioning system) technology, every image has been given a precise geographical coordinates. For Alexvi, besides exploring new artistic creative technique, the more important reason for taking these photos is the timeliness of these images. In 20 or 30 years, driverless vehicles and Artificial Intelligence will come into our lives and automatic parking will replace the current manual work. He once went to Tokyo but returned without capturing anything. People just need to drive their cars to the parking entrance and the cars will be parked by computers automatically. This means that these unconscious mistakes” will no longer exist.
