The authenticity of psychic phenomenon is often secured by photography that someone accidentally captured. Yet, it is not so delightful thing to treat photography as evidence of authenticity. For such a reason, the existence of ghosts often doubted by viewers and described as a possessed object or even as a mysterious product. The more ghosts are materialized through our intervention, the more suspicious they become. Perhaps, their authenticity depends on its intangibility. If we can not suppose its consensual visual form, then it is just better to focus on its fictional validity.
'Psychicpic' tries to prove the psychic existence by asking questions to the ghost and waiting for their responses. I put myself in the same position as the photographer, who had succeeded to capture the ghosts and the painting series is a result of this role-playing as a tool between humans and ghosts.
