“Painting of Change” and “Object of Change” are both artworks that can be periodically changed according to the owner using an attached dice. Constructed with seven shaped canvas to represent numbers, they are changed to the number that appear on the dices. The rest of the segments are placed regularly on a plank on the floor.
Paintings were originally separated from the real world of man by “absolute time and space” and were independent of it. However, as modern physics has made clear, absolute time and space are illusions, and time is perceived by human beings and by events.
In these works, the paintings or the objects, an absolute entity, are transformed by the uncertain contingency of a dice, opening up time and space. The artist tries to connect it to real human time and space through its events and actions. In this way, “object” becomes a kind of performing art that lives in the present, far from the fixed image of the figurative or abstract.
