The fear factor

A Chiang Mai artist has turned people's worries and anxieties into works of art

- +

Thasnai Sethaseree's latest art exhibition, "Trans-Structurity", is about fear. But unlike other artists' approach to the subject, which has often involved going deep into their own thoughts and feelings, his set of works is not the projection of his own fear. Instead, the public's sense of dread was the source of this artist's inspiration. He gathered the information about those fears with a combination of research and personal interaction with people. 

Colourful geometric patterns are produced from the ‘source code’ with a software program.

"My way of [making] art is different from other artists because I also have education in other fields like philosophy, sociology and politics. I was trained to look at societal and cultural issues in order to understand myself," Thasnai says.
