The series of rearrangements are site-specific installations that incorporated both materials found in the space and materials brought into the space. The work attests to the arbitrary meaningfulness of objects positioned within art space in its unsettled playful gestures.
microwave, laptops, projectors, plastic sheet, low-level work platform covered with paint, hand dust mop, a pot of Aglaonemas wrapped in plastic, low back stool, an interactive program that enlarges front camera captured image when the received volume goes up.
Despite that spectators often read domesticity and cleanness from the installations, in selecting individual objects, I had no intention to inscribe any specific meanings to the arrangements. There was only a preference for everyday objects that contain fewer design elements so as to initiate the least cultural or aesthetic references. The constallation of things sets to create an immersive experience that gives an impression of meaningfulness.

The series of rearrangements are created within the context of art school critique sessions. Taking advantage of the clean space where one expects to encounter “art”, everyday objects are appropriated into denoting art objects that inspire multiple interpretations of the situation. There is a contingent element in who reads what in his or her encounter of Series of Rearrangements, and prior to which is the made-conscious of changing one’s way of seeing when encountered with the mundane and the insignificant.
