A SF-style mirror world, generated in between the two components. This implies the existence of a parallel world that is certainly there in front of our eyes, though inconceivable. An analogy of Male fantasy that leans toward Sci-fi fantasy and visual complex.
What do gadgets and hardware such as cables and retrospective equipments used in this artwork mean? I pictured them as waste matters remaining in an aged man’s mind. Strange nostalgia for “things” that were left behind without realizing as the man faced adolescence and grew older. As the man started to take on the odor of Dandyism called maturity in a real society, those things came to be owned as convenient objects. And now they became toys once more. The man has toys once again in his hands, feels out-dated inconvenience as pleasure, remembers master-servant relationship that is given only to those who master the “things,” which is filled with the sense of superiority, and gets immersed in the pleasure that he should have enjoyed long ago. As if he solves an already answered problem, as if he spreads the legs of a slave obedient to her master, such a relationship realizes practical dominance beyond time through the process of mastering toys. For me, such an act almost seems like twisted caressing created by nostalgia. It is nothing more than a macho-way of loving that exists in a parallel world of the reality (= a visible world) and the ideal (= an invisible world).
