Installation Art Project

Project titled: Collaboration Contemporary Art /Media Arts:" At the Dawn of the 21st Century: A View-Thought The Red Window "
(The Critical Time of the World Civilization)


Basic Concept:

My goal is to investigate the expressive possibilities of conceptual visual language and to develop Collaborative New Art as part of both Contemporary Art/Contemporary Global Structure and the Technological Civilization in which we live today. I am especially interested in finding out how contemporary art can enhance the distribution of information and foster a profound universality in the human nature and cross-cultural artistic and critical collaboration. The meaning of the very possibility to enrich contemporary art may also come into question. In my inquiry, I am guided by the following set of questions: Are sensations-reactions to contemporary art still significant today? In what way and how can contemporary art theory and practice address and help solve today’s global problems? And finally, Can contemporary conceptual art disclose the corrupted social values in mega polices and create a bridge between the present and the future generations?.

How solve problems in an international perspective through the way thinking conceptual contemporary ideas process. How will affect their concept art ways enable in order to serve situation corrupted social values in the capital city that it's meaningful from present to future civilizations.

The project’s emphasis is on the two interwoven processes. The first step was to search for new expressive possibilities afforded by the contemporary visual language, as related to the cutting edge of “Art” and “Science.” I have explored the mental processes and various paradigms in order to represent the contemporary civilization clearly, without biases — the action that always constitutes specific challenges for Contemporary Arts and/or Modern Sculpture/Installation and Video Art. I had experimented with real-practice problems and analyzed the way in which they affect the internal sense until I was able to come up with the design solution. The results of the first step will have to be tested and the various findings project will have to be integrated. The conclusion will be drawn when research work associated with the New Art project will have been accomplished and the final ways of art will have been established.

The installation series of "Untitled1996"

Concept: "Untitled1996" has been developed into three dimensional works depicting living space in an expanse of emptiness comprising light, sound, and colors, all of which are closely connected with time, infinite time. One can hardly fathom the intrinsic value of any particular object; with time, it has lost the value and therefore has little by little declined or changed in terms of colors, dimensions as well as the overall appearance. The shape and form are hardly recognizable, as witnessed and experienced by Claude Monet, who has the eye for different phases of each object. In his eyes, physical appearance is beyond the scope of an average human being's sight.

From the 17th century to the present, human society has viewed all that surround it in a purely scientific way. Come to think of it, science is not able to yield all answers or solutions to our satisfaction.Architecture as presented in living space reveals that, in reality, what man calls "object" is merely the fusion of molecules, a form of energy. Our world is in fact two separate worlds ; one is the world of substance, the other the world of energy, formed by earth, water, wind and fire. The fifth element of the world of energy is the absolute emptiness. Heat, light, and electricity are examples of the instability of energy. The separation of each type of energy reveals a mere combination of different substances. An intellectual point of view labels any object as a worthless deterioration. Man once thought of Greek civilization as the peak of human culture but one day it became known to man that what he saw as a solid, geometrical structure died down in deconstruction. Similarly, the modern day concept of "light" can be compared to enlightenment while an object represents darkness.

What is expected of the 21st century onward is bringing human along the path towards genuine, infinite "light" "Living space" largely deals with dimension in space and silence. Time is the core element of spiritual existence. In between the world of dimensions and the world of silence stands man, whose attempt has been put in the link of the two worlds. In the process, man relies on his subconscious, which is treated as "true perception." The outside element is the atmosphere -- the intersection of time and space. While one imagines looking back into the past, the existence of space has halted and while we are standing at the intersection of time and space, we are in the present existence.

The installation series of "Utopia 1997"
(Theme concept from Untitled 1996)

Concept: "Utopia 1997" has developed from the installation series "Untitled 1996" that was part of the exhibition "Tomorrow where shall we live?" organized by the Japanese architect "Toyo Ito". The original concept derive from photomontage experimented with computer which has expanded into three-dimensional work composed with architectural strurcture, electronic lighting control, and sound effects all of which depict living space connected with time.

Today, the world comprises of uncertainties and ambiguities. Science and civilization are not able to yield all answers or solutions to our satisfaction. At times, knowledge may comprise of power with impact that are beyond individual's intuition and intellect. Often advances in science have challenged moral codes and ethics as well as faith and religion. When science and technology are utilized in approciate. They are seen as being a harm and threat to humanity.

The contradictory side of utopia is full of pessimism. Man's quest to conquer distant galaxies, an endless search for territories and colonies reflect his inner instinct for power, aggrandizement, and control. The imbalance of power between those who control and those under control has contributed to disorder and dilemma.

In the era of confusion and distortion values of aesthetics and common sense have been greatly transformed. At the end of the century we are facing the crisis of world civilization.
