Name & Concept of Artwork 作品名稱與設計理念
Concept of artwork 設計理念:
After the Industrial Revolution in the 18th century, the structures of the industrial complex increased noticeably. For the people at that time, factory was a symbol of new beginning and became their dreams . However, nowadays, the image of factory has degenerated as ruin and main cause of pollution. I, who grew up and lived in Ulsan city where specialised as an industrial complex has naturally faced the structures of the industrial complex. I started to feel there is a structural beauty on chimneys and pipelines, where normally people could not find any artistry and beautiful sense. Repetition of and accumulation pipelines which made of without certain rule creates huge building structures. As these structures form together and made a large industrial area, it has given me sublime and beauty. I desire to share my reinterpretation of structural beauty of industrial complex with audiences. With my share, I hope to re-define the industrial complex as a sculpture of artistic value, not as a result of the Industrial Revolution.
One of the mirrors in the semicircle was placed on the floor, the other was attached to the wall, and a ceramic work was installed on top of it to maximize the effect of the factory.
