이곳은 빌딩의 분전반 (distribution panelboard)을 생산하는 공장이다. 커다란 케비넷 분전반을 만드는데 대략 20개의 스티로폼과 여러 종류의 비닐 쓰레기가 나온다. 이것들을 모아 로켓을 만들고 사진을 찍었다. 로켓은 대략 한 달간 전시되었고, 사진만을 남기고, 버려졌다.

Bulb tree” is mainly constructed with about 100 bulbs filled with liquid bleach (The bulbs are not electrically functioning). The chemical water then dissolves the connecting part between the glass and the socket made with aluminum. This makes the bulbs fall at unexpected moments and crash completely, creating a spontaneously changing scene on the floor. The whole process of chemical function displays an accelerated degradation effect, which represents the simultaneity of destruction and creation in nature. The bulbs seem to imitate falling fruits from a living tree in the exhibition space.     

The “Bulb Tree” was created in 2014, which was the year when the production of the filament-bulb had ceased due to the invention of LED-technology. As the filament-bulb, one of the most important inventions, once useful but had become a relic of the past, the “bulb tree” experiences seasons of change. It also suggests a clear manifestation of new cultural circumstances.

Fragments scattered on the black wooden board display a sort of explosive image. This piece is designed to be a part of the work, “Bulb Tree”. The chemical water in the bulbs dissolves the part that connects the glass and the socket and produces viscid sediments in the glass bulbs. This chemical byproduct is a byproduct of time.

Eventually the bulbs burst and scatter the sediments and glass pieces on the board. When all fragments are collected on the board, they are collectively an image of passage of time. It also evokes the image of the evolutionary stages of a star’s life and death.

Landscape of dust, Jaewon Kim creates a sort of landscape structure which material is gradually decomposed by chemical reaction of cleaning liquid.  Inside the showcase made of aluminum and plexiglass, the artist displays several kinds of grains composed of micro-beads, activated carbon and iron exchange resin spheres. The cleaning bleach catalyzes the chemical reaction with those ingredients and generates white dust particles.  The materials used in this piece are applied daily for cleaning stuff and purifying water. The chemical reaction progressively changes the landscape in the showcase. The tiny particles floating in the water also translate the condition of the liquid. Installed electronic devices such as an air pump create movement of the particles.  This visual effect evokes a sloppy weather condition or destroyed environment.

“The pedestal” is made up of biological materials: mold, black wood, and the nature’s work of enhancing growth, conserved inside a vitrine. This piece focuses on the process of growth and death of mold. It is a synthetic way to witness the nature’s innate change and movement in the passage of time. Mold would grow, die, and sprout to life again incessantly inside a vitrine.  Their spores, though not visible, are all around us. Molds have existed even on earth since 2.4 billion years ago. With few controlled ingredients such as humidity and temperature, molds will propagate and transform continually. Depending on the air condition or microbes inside the vitrine, the sculpture shows various colors and figures as time passes. Two thermo-hygrometers are placed inside the hall. One displays the condition inside the vitrine and the other for the exhibit hall. They demonstrate the two different climates sharing the same space.

<Sèdiment> Dieses Projekt ist auf Basis der chemischen Reaktion der Zersetzung konzipiert. Das Material bleibt mit der Flüssigkeit in der Plexiglaskiste, das mit der Zeit zersetzt wird, woraus anfangs kleinere Partikel entstehen und später nach und nach schwinden. Es ist der Zerlegungsprozess des Material. Jedes Mal, wenn sich die elektronische Luftpumpe anschaltet, kreiert die dadurch erzeugte Wasserbewegung aesthetische visuelle Bilder von den Partikeln, die in der Flüssigkeit schweben. Sozusagen, Die Bewegung, die der Betrachter sehen kann, ist eine laufende chemische Prozesse.
