Project 6

Collage of items
Snow globe
I would love to collect snow globe while going travel and this is the one I got at Chicago. It was really fun to shape the apples and put them texture.

Singular item
Flat shoes
This is my favorite hand-made flat shoes. I had hard time with the shaping of inside. Still need to work on the detail.

Project 4 Film Emulation

I emulated Yoko Ono's Fluxus film "One". When I saw this film, I thought it is so beautiful and has strong impact even though only a few materials were used to film. I still wanted to remain these elements as well as wanted to add something new, so I added some noises and colors on the flame a match and the matchbox. Also this film was silent, I recorded it with sounds and added some effect. I would love to film and it was so much fun. I especially focused on the angle of view. My fingers were almost burning the moment I lighted a match. It was hot.

Reading 2

1. A media theorist Marshall McLuhan states that electronic communications were an extension of the human nervous system and operated in a binary kind of progression -- as technology advances, so does human sensory perception needed to receive it. What kind of electronic communications does human sensory perception need to receive in everyday lives? Is it really necessary for us?

2.  The trend of technology is towards greater access through decreased size and cost. Eventually, the video signal itself became a site for investigation into the intrinsic properties of the medium. What are the other thinkable factors that artists see the video medium as rich with possibilities for aesthetic experimentation?

Reading 1 Questions

1. In the section II, he mentioned, "Even the most perfect reproduction of a work of art is lacking in one element: its presence in time and space, its unique existence at the place where it happens to be. This unique existence of the work of art determined the history to which it was subject throughout the time of its existence". Thus, reproduction of art loses the concept of authenticity and then it also shows us that there is no historical evidence of existing specific period of time. Can it be still a good tool to determine the history even if it does not retain the concept of authenticity?

2.  In modern days, the new form of arts have been created such as performing art or installation. These kind of, sort of "performance art" needs the element, such as specific time or space, so it cannot have the element of reproducibility. Photography is similar to these kind of modern arts because the time or space are specified and the one moment to take a shoot is only one time. However, he mentioned that photography is the reproductive work. Is is true?

Project 1:Digital Triptych Montage

The title of this work is "Fade". I used to photoshop cc. I got all of images from Tumblr.
My work represents how our memories fade away over time we have spent. We experience both good and bad, and then it has been stored as emotion. It is sometimes sweet, and also bitter. However, when we recall that which has been stored, they might be faded. We sometimes make our memories more beautiful than actually happened at that time. If we think the way that all of things happening our lives are meaningful to grow, each life event  is important, and can be beautiful. I want to describe that our memories are easily faded away beautifully.
