Cocoon 2012

Paper, wood, iron, halogen lamps with electronics
117 x 89 x 58 cm 

The cocoon shell represents the wish of rebirth. The crust's material consists of old diary entries which were selected, then printed on Chinese paper and gelatinized around a thin wooden frame. The cocoon has two openings at the ends, allowing viewers to read excerpts of my Korean-written diary entries. Although the body looks, externally, very similar to an Asian paper lamp, which is transparent in the light. This work is illuminated by five halogen lamps installed on the base.
