Measuration of Relationship, 2018

Installation

According to Edward T. Hall, there are many factors in interpersonal distance: language, culture, olfaction, temperature, touch, sound. Although the physical distance between people doesn’t completely represent the interpersonal relationship, it’s the somehow psychological rules which we can become aware of in order to improve the relationship among people.

 

I believe there is the wall between people which I consider to be from the culture gap, but the feeling of a boundary of the person which actually is caused by people's attitudes toward the cultural difference. I did the installation as the transparent wall means the inviable barriers.

 

Its transparency is made by acrylic boards which with the shape of the objects that are the factors causes the culture gap. The shape of the compressing objects show the repress of emotions and the feeling of depression.
