Consists of poem ("Genesis"), drawings (20 Chants of Sonogram), and moving image (Your Presence Within What is Independent from You)
Genesis Trilogy consists of three different formats: poem, drawings, and moving image. This work has inspired several other projects: Annunciation and Transformation of Time Machine. In addition, this work led to writing a manifesto for my future audience.
In Fall 2018, I moved to London to study abroad at Chelsea College of Arts. Spending most of my time in solitude reflecting on my past projects, I established the context of my artistic
practice to search for my potential audience. In the process, I curated my first hypothetical solo show "The Birth: Celebration in Art" based on Sofia Zoë's art theory of Container Technology.
I composed the artist statement in poetic form by following the inner voice of the mysterious psychological agent deep inside my psyche. It almost happened spontaneously beginning with a voice calling "Genesis". This inner voice directly guided my writing effortlessly independent from my conscious. I was so fascinated that I needed to investigate the origin and purpose of this inner voice: I broke down the poem into minimal units of dialogue,
then made an abstract drawing of each alphabet to acquire a visual fragment of the whole dialogue. Each alphabet became a frame and each line a scene — a total of 579 frames with 20 scenes composed into a 2-minutes stop-motion video.
1 In the beginning, I was formless, forgotten, and empty;
2 In the beginning, I was invisible, inaudible, and insensible;
3 Thus, I was not existed;
4 Yet, I was there forever.
5 In the beginning, he was object, infant, and child;
6 In the beginning, he was selfless, forgotten, and empty;
7 Thus, we were not existed;
8 Yet, we were there together.
9 In the beginning, it was timeless, boundless, and infinite;
10 In the beginning, it was formless, selfless, and empty;
11 Thus, it was not existed;
12 Yet, we were there altogether.
13 In the beginning, we were one, everything, and nothing;
14 In the beginning, we were three, connected, and separated;
15 Yet, we were not discovered;
16 , we were not visible;
17 , we were not audible;
18 , we were not sensible;
19 Thus, we were there altogether.
