"The Presence" 

2018 / mixed-media

With advances in technology and the corresponding increase in data transmission speeds, visual modes of communication such as pictures and videos have become mainstream on social media.

Information difficult to convey through words or sound alone, such as expressions, gestures, colors, and atmosphere, can be transmitted visually, increasing the presence of information in our lives.

While understanding that there is no fish in the illuminated box, the viewer perceives the existence of a fish by the projection of its shadow.

“Presence” in this piece reflects the reality of information of the Internet.

As exemplified by the fish in the box, which cannot be felt but whose shadow can be seen, the presence of something may create a false sense of existence.
