PALISADES PARK NJ Korea

As time passes through the day, the world becomes darker and things become monochromatic as darkness casts its shadow. I use this opportunity to create a distinctive phenomenon by projecting a bright light in the world where things are made indistinguishable by darkness. For me, this moment reflects not only a separation but also a point that stimulates human desire. It creates a point where the light shines so brightly onto something that it makes it viewable, but at the same time hides everything on the opposite end of the light. Because of the brightness of the light, its source is never revealed, nor is what creates it or what exists there. This reflects the dynamic of human desire, which begins from something unknown and somewhere unreachable. Therein lays irony: something is hidden not by darkness but by brightness. This work usually happens at night or, to be exact, at the moment when day disappears and night emerges. When the bright light that forms day disappears, elements that were shaped by light are concealed and changed by the property of darkness. Here, visual possibility fades but creativity and creation are stimulated. For me, light is a source that reveals an objects' shapes and meanings, but it eliminates the possibility of reconstructing them through darkness. Light is a source that illuminates and reveals objects, but the elements shined on experience constancy, not revelation.
