One definition of chaos is when nonlinear things are impossible to predict and control. If law and order rule the universe, chaos, by contrast, is the totally disorganized opposite.

I always seek out such scenes to match my surroundings with my quiet inner state when I’m photographing. Then I re-photograph each image with a film camera more than 5 times and process them with the high-temperature developer at each time. So then, to produce more and more variations in the final image. The quality-degraded photographs show the opposite of the quiet and peaceful content. I use this procedure to achieve the balance between the stillness and dynamic to explore the essence of the chaos.
