Daily One-Off Feeling, 2018, Dimensions Variable, Slip, plaster, glassbox
As we eat every day, we feel every day. Everyday feelings are variable based on what we experience, and then when the day is gone, the feeling is gone as well. Sometimes, people can recall a memory of some emotions, but nobody can keep the exact same feeling that they had in a moment, regardless of how hard they try.
This project is focused on how to represent the daily one-off feeling in an art installation. The plates in this work are made of ceramic slip and change easily because I did not fire those plates in the kiln. Thus, those are imperfect. After using these plates and throwing them into the glass box containing water, it easily goes back to liquid. Audiences throw the plate away into the glass water box, and the plates' fragments turn into a formless mass. The medium's flexible condition fits into the symbolizing the one-off consumption and transience of our feelings each day. It shows how we produce and consume daily feelings.
