Nothing was said but a gesture, and when you listened the gestures became flowers (a conversation of objects), 2012
Installation of objects and video, in collaboration with Hyemin Kim
This collaborative work was about trying to communicate through objects rather than through language. The only dialogue was through the forms of the objects, their materials, and how they related to the other objects. They became evidence of the relationship, a ritual of knowing each other and the place where we were. Once the objects were made, they began to relate to each other and took on new meaning outside of what either human creator meant to say. The video work is a conversation that occurred after the objects were made, in English and Korean, and further evidences the gaps between intended and received meaning.
