" I gather scattered thoughts, and record stagnant thoughts. "
I collect, amplify and visualize the unfamiliar energy, which is usually felt in a thing or phenomenon easy to see in everyday life. These energies are referred to as ' everyday noise ' and are observed, collected, and tested for these noises.
If previous work had collected the fragmented noises that would normally be felt in an abandoned object or in an unnoticeable space, this work has visualized the noise that is perceived by non-material thoughts that are not visually defined.
Noise is also referred to as racket, atmospherics, but is also an intrusive sound of an ongoing sound. I felt this attribute comes from idle fantasies of thinking easy and forgetting things. Especially I felt this energy strongly when it was not in context. For example, either I think of a Hawaiian dancer heavy talking to someone , or there are situations like when I suddenly think of my elementary school memories in detail before I go to sleep.
I collected these intrusive thoughts through my own and others. I collected about 15 people's scattered fantasies in a way like defragment the disk on a PC and I took out the thoughts that collected and extracted them, as if they were being restored from a waste basket of PC. I reinterpreted these thoughts with the artist's perspective and directed them.
In the video work, each thought was cut out in the form of an omnibus and composed like a documentary film, and each fantasy(or daydream) was restructured according to the feeling that the artist felt.
In the installation work, I pulled out the glass from the video image into reality and Stereography it, and visualized the meaning of " Gather scattered thoughts, and record stagnant thoughts ". The tools used in the installation were randomly selected and reconstructed according to the artist's imagination, and I recreated idle fantasies which is easily being discarded(like a neat set table)
In the photograph work, I was carried out using the camera's multI-exposure function, by collecting the associated frame(I felt) within walking distance of the first frame and then superimposing it three times. Pictures of scattered frames were overlaid to make the stagnant frame(collecting images as if it were collecting dragonflies) , Whereby new meaning was derived from it.
