University of the Arts London Chelsea College of Art: stage 1 & stage 2

Communication:communication like fabric


communication like fabric

The media art and drawing technique can deliver a message to the audiences to facilitate the communication with sympathy. In such way, the media can embrace artistic imagination while the art can widen its passage of communication, so the theme of communication can be expressed effectively once it is portrayed not by a single field but in combination of both art and media. I want to establish the foundation of my work on the old concept of the art, ‘Pictorialization Reappearance’ while adopting diverse media.

My art work shows what “communication” is. Life is given only once to everyone, and you creates your own story using the single chance by interacting with surroundings as a member of the society. In the story, you establish a connection to someone, and the threads of connections are used to produce a woven fabric as the full story of life.

Each tiny episode is combined to be the behind story of us. Cherished relationship and memories are stored in us, and they will be shared again when retrieved from our archive later on. They become a real communication among us. They will provide us different experience than simple conversation with strangers or about immature stories. An artificial behavior may be produced with special efforts. Every conversation among people will be evaluated for its value that becomes parts of a large scale story like a woven fabric with the artificial ones. The time of death may be interpreted as the completion of the fabric of life story, and you can complete the story of your life through communication of the fabric with others.

Lack of communication

Lack of communication

During my college year, I had a lot of fun things, above all, I would say the one of the most valuable and precious thing was tutorial time. Through this time, most of students included me, could learn and ask any questions to them during their art works and tutors gave us counsel and suggestion of direction at the same time. Moreover, they gave us information about students did not recognize. When I had fist tutorial, I got suggestion about association and possibility between my career works and Duchamp‘s works which completed ready-made concept. Because of tutorial, I was convinced about my significant college life. At my second tutorial, tutor told me that I should study about Karen Killimnik. While I studied her works, I was so pleasure that I almost cry out.

Finally, I can create my own art work affected from these artists with communication subject as a new “communication series # 3”.

The first art work is first impression about London Where I am going to study during 3 years is excited from my viewing land mark of London, high spirited with cosmopolitan life and lonely from particular weather of London, by which I felt chaos and subtlety. I depicted my mind which could not be established in London yet but still float on the atmosphere of London with view as an international student. I created my art work through luggage, from which I have opportunity to communicate with London as a media like canvas. Luggage is not just object but a vehicle through which I can connect to London and my alter ego contained my life story.

The second art work is door of communication. Compassionate communication skills can dramatically improve the quality of your life. Express concerns openly and honestly in a way that invites understanding instead of defensiveness. Develop empathetic understanding of others without compromising your own values. Even in situations of long-standing conflict or hostility, our communication process can open new doors to understanding and partnership.

When people are in conversation with each other not only speak with sound but also gaze eyes. Sometimes, even though between two persons talk about the same subject, someone lead the dialogue as a higher vantage position in perspective, and another person become a good listener with posture of heart by reducing.

Through main two art pieces with many exercise drawing, I can develop the range of my main subject, communication and would like to try to express these communication with not only just like now days painting techniques but also performance, installation, and image using digital technology. With these my attempt and new way to express my feelings, I create the third art work.

The third art work is “absence or lack of communication”, which expresses negative side of communication between creature and another creature. In other words, I show that people lives in trapped in the framework of communication and meaningless communication, these days, creating situation that having problems with different or distorted understanding as if the broken mirror cannot reflect object clearly when people try to communicate each other at the small stage frame. I express distance with difference of size of shape of human and with that he maximizes my topic “absence or lack of communication”.

Interesting point in this art work is that I try to install moving technology system which attracts for audiences to be able to feel curiosity with sound sensor when audiences make some sound.

Moreover, based on creating of performance and installation art field like Karne Kilimnik’s art work, I create small 3D space like performance stage with different two kinds of moving image as the same subject series. One is Morse signal (communication -.-. — — — ..- -. .. -.-. .- – .. — -.) designed as a key which means communication is the Key factor in human social life. And the other is world map combined with one white line designed as a USIM: universal subscriber identity module card that is installed in every different mobile phone, identifying every different person own self, which means all of world where different people live is connected with each other through modern communication system, mobile phone.
