A strange reference: a Manga as reference for the concept of ‘Mind is moving’Uhh, I can’t stop to read and rethink about this manga : Liar Game
One main character, Nao Kanzaki , a “foolishly honestly” and naivety, could be further refer to people who believe ‘beauty of human’…
A “foolishly honest” college student, who, by chance and accident, begins to play the Liar Game. She is known for her extreme honesty and initially, her naivete – as she believes everyone else is honest as well. For instance, she waits over a day in the same spot for Akiyama when he says “I’ll be right back”. Due to her honesty and naivety, she appears less intelligent at times; she was also known to be rather emotional. Before Round III, she had a tendency to cry a lot, a trait which Akiyama often snapped at her for. However, her soft and demure appearance plays an advantage by allowing her to learn more about the people she talks to, whose guard is often lowered as they interpret her as “weak and helpless” and thus little threat. Her only known family is her father, who resides in a hospital with a long-term illness. Though she is weak and naive, Nao is often able to make profound insights concerning the Liar Game and “human nature”. Thanks to Akiyama’s efforts, she has obtained multiple opportunities to leave the Liar Game; however, she continues initially due to the LGT’s manipulation, and later because she wishes to save the other players of the Liar Game who have fallen into debt.
By referring to what is enlightenment from the point of view of Buddhist, it would be ’self-enlightenment’… a process to be explore from the inner of self. By which, it seems giving up a lot (I’ll elaborate the details in the thesis).
And the believe on people, try to saving others, and trust on humanity… yes, seems ridiculous. But many of the game rules in the story, which is setting up the participants under certain ‘primary principle’ – the original meanings/subtext of the game, are reflected by the ugly sides of humanity…
The ugly sides, in simply, is the ‘moving’ of mind.
Nao’s purity and foolish honest, would be something I love to explore… not in terms of honesty, but humanity instead…
In the Manga, there’s a lot of game theories, modified by simple folk games. However, the point is challenging the participant’s psychological and behavīoral attitude. I attempts to quote and translate part of the story, as an case study / reading reference for such ‘Aha’ story (Zen/Buddhist intellectual story) applying in our common psychology and even POP culture.
Furthermore, please read about my writings/poetic text on HUG project… which is also what I felt and reacted to artist Hyemin Park’s performance… Honesty or Naivety ?!
The work I’m showing in this contest exhibition is a dual channel high definition video installation. Here’s the venue installation view.
The Digifesta media festival in Gwangju consists five different parts:
Main exhibition ‘시속視速2010′ (by invitation of international media artists)
Retrospective exhibition of Nam June Paik
Rookie: contest exhibition of the selected artists, by previous open call for competition.
Experience exhibition (by invitation, not too sure about their curatorial approach, maybe national media artists/parties)
Symposium: The Neutral Zone of Digital Image – Visuals from Sun and Moon (National and international speakers, including scholar, curator, art critic, art historian…, for details, I can make a note on it on request)
Huh, they're a amazing band, and the show itself aims for the survival/fund raising of a HK culture / art magazine C for Culture.

The different place and space in art is one of the endless topic of Contemporary art. Once the work of art exhibits under different locations, it is unavoidably to discuss how and why the work exhibits in such way, especially for the work which is more site-sensitive (I pick this word instead of site-specific in this case)
I participates an art exhibition/video screening event… in which I would like to re-exam my ‘dizzy’ video in the context of different places and the consciousness of different spectators.
The Sense of place
Is it possible to remember a place entirely?
The place where we exist is an intersection of human imagination, time and space. A place is distinguished and acquires meaning only as a result of personal experience. In other words, the moment we encounter a place it is mediated and reproduced in the memory at a moment of transition between familiarity and unfamiliarity. This exhibition includes art works which engage with the uniqueness of ’sense of place’.
The length of the video ‘Journal To The Other World’ have been shortened, attempting to challenge the consciousness from the potential viewers. The Arts bar have regular ‘customer’… apart from art lover, more people come to enjoy the performance night and of course… drink drink drink! The concept of the arts bar interests me to rethink about my video, from it’s screening/exhibiting methods as well as the context of place.
The place I’d show this video, including formal and informal context, nature of show and curatorial theme. The feedback from viewer would be varied in terms of viewer’s expectation, background and culture. Here’s the place I’d shown:
*National Art Gallery, Malaysia (An international group exhibition: ASIA@ASIA: Manifesting Diversity, a busy and complex mixture under an official atmosphere)
*1a space, Hong Kong (a showcase show ‘ sideward narration‘, alongside with an exhibition called ‘Art Publication’, similar to a white cube space)
*Art’s exhibition space and bar, London (as mentioned)
I cannot predict and expect the outcome, but I may continue to show this work under different situation if it is interesting.
HUG - Hyemin Park + Enoch CheungThe project is a collaboration by Hyemin and Enoch. Hug performances were held in London and Seoul. The project started from the day Hyemin left London (14 Jan 2010), she hugged everyone who she talked with such as a cashier, a shop keeper, inspectors on bus etc. As an observer Enoch responds the performances.
