The Presence Between You and Me _ The connection of two objects
People feel emotional distance from one another. It is not a sense of physical distance but also emotional one too. “Relationship” means it only appears, at least when two objects must encounter, correspond, and react. One object with its own identity is related to each other, and the encounter of two objects creates another relationship between the two. I think these countless relationships make up a world, and in the end it constitutes a world (universe).
The “membrane”, which does not exist visually, is an expression of infinite space created between two objects through the expression of gaps or lines. I also think it is like a record of living life in mixed worlds created by infinite space. Therefore, I believe the psychological response and physical senses that I feel as I go across the border called “myself” and interact with other people are continuously accumulating. That is, “I” am a membrane that exists to protect myself from the outside world but also a vulnerable being that is constantly affected by it.
And, the sky and the sea I use in my work mean two objects. The sky and the sea seem to be in physical contact, but in fact, they cannot reach each other; the one is above, and the other below. They do however communicate the existence of each other through the presence of water. I feel this reflects on the relationship between people and the world that I have known as I live. My works are about all of these corresponding relationships.
