Faculty Response:
Repetition of Imitation, Analysis, Reconsideration & Metamorphic Representation: Material and its methodology - The work reveals the figurative quality of clay that changes through its own physical, phenomenal characteristics in one round of space and by time and by place. This is not artificial completion through a common procedure (a static product of formative, structural approaches) but an incompletion of the clay itself (a dynamic and conceptual revelation of the changing process). Conversion of thought on the subject and object - In the work, the clay and the body are not mere objects but rather subjects. That is, both I as an artist and the clay are subjects and are objects. Concepts on the clay and the body and the results of these concepts yield my work, and this is shown in the expressional form of art and craft I question whether or not my own unique concept of work can be an objective reasonable one, which has made me recognize I am enslaved by a particular idea about material or by my own subjective concepts. And in my reflective, de-constructional and conceptual working, I often wonder whether art, ironically, is merely an object of my expression and I feel a certain dilemma that I am composing another subjective idea with a seemingly appropriate hypocrisy. What changes art into an object by the fixed process is expressed with a sensitivity and sensibility, new content is based on the purity (i.e., Representation: no apprehension about the specific logic, but submissiveness about a law of nature).
