Stuck Stuck Stuck, 2014
Suction plates do not easily come off once they are stuck. It is difficult to take off because it compresses the air. One day, I shook a suction plate that was stuck on my window from side to side to remove it. In the meantime, it made traces like a drawing. In this project, I researched the characteristics of the suction plates and used it to make works. For Suction plate drawing tool, 2014 I made tools that make the suction plate traces into drawings. I could create various sizes and shapes of the traces by using different types of suction plates. I put paints on the tools, and made drawings on the PVC film which is the good material to make the suction plates stick to.
Making stone towers are one of the wish making behaviors in Korea. People pray for the wishes come true while they are building the stone towers. In Make a wish, 2014 I borrowed this behavior, and made a structure by piling the suction plates to make my wish come true. I tried to build the tower as high as possible, so my wish comes true. I used the characteristics of stickiness that does not come off easily.
