Gold Town

2017
12 min video loop multi projections, speakers, drain plunger rubber cups, measuring devices, office equipment, employment information created by viewers of this work
|size variable
An L-shaped desk with drawing stationaries and many black rubber cups are installed in an office. Three employees sometimes go out to measure.

A series called (Re) interpretation is a creation of a fictitious occupation that deliberately interrupts and confuses general recognition of objects and behaviors. Videos of the occupation are projected in its office as an exhibition space, which is along with audios of employment information created by viewers of this work. Multiple layers of interpretations urge viewers to arouse their imagination to several interpretations beyond basic grasp. This unreal and unproductive work reinvents itself as more interpretations continue to emerge.
