This work is an "imaginary fruit"
of an unnamable and unseen emotions that exist inside me.
This work is based on the tactile
sensations left in my hand and in my heart when I roll a cacao pod in my palm.
While I was creating this work, I did not
think about the meaning of the work, but focused on the tactile sensation of
the clay. After creating the work, I learned that cacao has a scientific name
"Theobroma Cacao" and "Theobroma" means "food of the
gods" in Greek. That is when a story came to my mind.
What if there is a god that loves human
senses and emotions?
Emotions cannot be touched nor seen, but to
me, abundant in "tactile sensations", and I am able to feel this
world colorfully through various emotions. What if emotions have
"tastes" that satisfy a god’s hunger?
A god would surely want humans to feel
more. What emotions are considered "delicious" to a god will probably
remain a secret to us forever, which will make human senses and emotions more
profound and interesting, and extra delicious to a god.
When I focus on my senses and emotions, my
words and thoughts slowly dissipate. And I am left with the desire to taste
what I can feel, as much as I can.
