Reward stickers
Installation with mixed materials and video projector.

‘Reward sticker’ is about the objects and images that support the society, nation, and ideology, starting with small groups. They produce things such as badges, posters, rewards, songs, .etc, to give a sense of belonging, value, meaning to people, and it seems that people are willing to participate and desire to be in the group. As I delve into how to visualize and use symbolic images to justify their rule and system, I discover the reality that the aura of an image disappeared, and it remains as the decorative element through the process of reproducing and editing images paradoxically. I try to peel off the aura of concept and abstract from the objects. The objects and images could represent a fragment of the real world themselves by dissolving and overlapping the images.
