LIGHT AND SHADOWS
02. Object



Clock hands /ver.1

Since shadows emerge from the interaction between light and things, they are evidence of something being material not just abstract. Chanbyul use a shadow as a tool through which to understand the relationships that humans form with different concepts and objects.

Light is an immaterial matter that reveals all other substances. Where there is light, everything with mass, from elephants to molecules, has a shadow. In a universe where light is natural, shadows are evidence of existence. In the past, there was the only one light source, the sun. It means that there was only one shadow. These days, however, human has invented artificial light sources, the light bulbs. Shadows arise according to the number of light sources. One light has one shadow, and two light sources have two shadows. Now we can see tons of artificial light sources and tons of shadows anytime, anywhere. This is the shape of the present era that is completely different from the past.

In addition, the shadow is proof that 'I' exists in the present moment as an observer. Recording a shadow is possible only when an object blocks the light and creates darkness. Chanbyul records this moment as both observer and recorder. Chanbyul hopes to deliver the idea that shadows can thus be tools through which to understand the relationships that humans form with different concepts and objects.

It means that facing the shadows represent facing the present. The shadow is a great tool for facing the world we live in Chanbyul paints with objects that can be seen in daily life and common shadows. This is to convey the idea that we can easily get new reflections on the world anytime, anywhere in our daily life.
