2012  “a collectivity of each work / Kosmos / Refuse stardust / Spiral silence / Baki-Baan-Barara”

The work "Cosmos" is a collectivity of microcosms made up by the concepts of each work and expresses a macrocosm, the universe, on the whole. The microcosms represented each of the works are an epitome of the world expressing our society and personal relationships by mimicking sounds. The sounds are visualized by letters on a detail of the microcosms, which highlighted in comparison with the macrocosm.



Kosmos  2012  magazine "Kosmos", paste, frame, acrylic board, glass

These collage works are composed of illustrations and letters clipped from the science magazine "Kosmos" in Germany. Visualized sounds, briefly onomatopoeia (imitative and mimetic word), clarify situations of the illustrations and give them movements as well. Despite of cultural and linguistic differences, these works enable viewers to perceive nuances of the sounds automatically with the help of its pronunciation 


Refuse meteor  2012  dimensions variable  various trashes, metal lacquer on the wall

The works represent an image of meteor by giving small refuse on the street onomatopoeiaimitative and mimetic word, which are associated with "flight". It implies situations of our society and day life, in which everything has been fluid and changing continuously.


Baki-Baan-Barara  2012 40x40x30cm  color pencil

The title means a combination of sounds of pencil's "snapping", "bursting" and "falling", and the form as well as the installation itself expresses these three movements. Its title "Baki-Baan-Barara" helps viewers to imagine the "sounds" visually which cannot be perceived aurally in reality.


Spiral silence  2012 70x70 cm alphabetical confetti, paste, plastic wrap

Alphabet makes sense, when it is spelled in a certain order. Otherwise it doesn't have any meanings and cannot be read appropriately. It doesn't make unreadable any more and means a silence.
