Installed Neon with my signature signed on the neon tube.
At several art spaces in Paris. 2006
The idea was a kind of romantic tho. Since when I was young the wish to have my work installed at the art spaces in Europe was my pleasure. So this was the decision I have made to started to installed the neon with my signature at art spaces. I was participated in Nuit Blanche, Paris, 2006 that when I moved around Paris to several galleries asked their permission to installed my neon at their art space. It was a little discrete project which the piece was not noticeable but as its function was helping another artist’s works are visible.

Emotions as Water
BangkokUniversity’s Gallery, 2001
In 2001, the title of the work is “Emotions as Water”, presented in the white cube room of gallery. Object and word were interwoven by the title [Emotions as Water]. I created a wooden structure around the room and filled the room with water at the height of 20cm. A canvas put to prevent water leaking was built in the wooden framework. The wooden stage was set over the door after the entrance. Halogen spotlight was hung over the ceiling at the very front of the entrance. It collided with the water causing the illuminated light of the sparkling reflection all around the room. The spectators who were standing outside the exhibition room would see the still water of the well and static of the illuminated light surrounded the room, but then when they entered the room and stepped into the water, suddenly simultaneously reaction of the wave caused by the movement of the spectators. Its glistening stillness intermittently disrupted by the entry of spectator whose movements cause ripples, the reflection of which are thrown onto the surrounding walls. The work of art with the perception of the spectator is to simultaneously transfer between physical space and mental perception. The sense and the sound of water appeared from every step of movement produced the imagination evoked from the sensation received from the touch of the water and light. The sense stimulated the spectators, water and light. These are the results of the relationships between object and emotion. The content and the expression are formed from the sense/meaning and the attributes/events. This plane of consistency are incorporeal transformation of the bodies were effected through language.
Red and Blue Floor [Faintness of Intimacy]
About studio & About café, 1998
In 1998, the title of the work is “Blue and Red Floor [Faintness of Intimacy]”. I created an art object based on the influential idea of Abstract Painting. It was not suspended but laid down on the floor. Two colors were used to paint on the MDF wooden sheets. One side was painted red and the other was blue. After measurement of the space, the wooden sheet was cut and put together, laid it down on the floor and fixed it perfectly into the space. I turned the red side up but the blue was unrevealed. Then the red occupied the whole room. The spectators, who were participated, received the information from the working process’s photos before it was completely furnished. This set of photos was hung on the transparent glass, which divided the interior and exterior. These photos featured the red and the blue paints on both side of the wooden sheets, covered the floor, which the red presented on the top and the blue unseen. The drawing of the plane was presented on the wall. This elemental model was presented as a work of art. The unfamiliar feeling of the spectators was revealed after realized the unusual relationship with the work of art they stepped on. These results the reaction of simultaneous emotion and object. Every movement of the spectator on this red floor has another parallel image of hidden blue. This image transcended into word. Simultaneity of objection and emotion was stimulated by the certain number of this situation. The correspondence of which is brought a parallel transformation, the collaboration that induces a decentring shift in the object of thought and the thinker.
