Last winter, I bought some special bottles and other objects at an antique shop in Monticello, upstate New York, and I added hologram technology to complete for new works.
The purchased bottles are containers manufactured by CLOROX detergent company, which metaphors the global environment that is contaminated by human convenience and desire.
Last February, I was move the bottles and other objects to my studio in Korea, completing a total of 11 works during March, April and May when the whole world suffered from the Corona Virus 19. These completed works will be moved again to New York and will be exhibited at Gallery MC, NY from July 14 to July 25 this year.
