Jean Junng (South Korea)

I believe the most fundamental order of the world is Height, Depth, and Flow.

It includes physical properties of objects and emotional characteristics of humans. The essence of the research is about the promise, which is an interaction between all living things(including humans) and inorganic substances. The promise means order. The order moves material and emotion. The world’s order makes the process visible. There is no result. The process of creating harmony is what we call the world. Orders create Gap. Gap can mean a relationship with each other; it also can represent space or time from one place to another. Gap implies distance, which means the balance between pulling and pushing energy.

-Material's Gap: A distance that is constantly moving and maintained, such as the planets in the universe, and the atoms in material.

-Human's Gap: Human beings even keep a distance from themselves. That distance causes a gap, and it becomes anxiety. A gap between people causes conflict.

Distance includes height. ‘Being high’ only can exist with ‘being low’. It does not just imply ‘the status of high or low’, or ‘a relationship between power and no power’. It signifies a bit more primitive thing: a basic instinct, or thing before that.
