A Certain Portable Calculator by Heyon Han
Let’s say there’s a calculator and it has 23 handles. It needs inputs so it can create outputs.
To make judgment on any matter that lacks logical agreement the calculator has to offer a certain system, this system increases the perception of social support – the importance of this is enough for me to bother telling you – it’s about a way of being.
An input could be a memo that fell from the sky, it could be written without any meaningful intent. We as a certain portable calculator can make judgments with operations using inputs and outputs. This doesn’t necessarily involve evaluation, what matters is the decision making method; it opens practice to a new way of mapping.
Mapping with desultory orientation leads us to encounter the object in a most democratic way.
Surface persists for its histories. The surface therefore can be abandoned. Things with heavy surfaces are bound to accumulate; they need to be made lighter, or better still without surface at all. A shift then can happen reframing the form and making the surface transferrent. This shift carries the time and value of its origin, its ego, its identity; maybe memory makes you who you are. A shift from history is critical in making an artwork.
Sculpture suggests the world that cannot be seen all at once.
Walk for yourself
Any moving image works as a source of light and indication of time. Being in time is like living in some other creature.
I call history as actions. It requires effort to go through them then, what remains are holes – what I gotta do is look carefully into these and enlarge them.
Disappointment is a great place to start: however to avoid disappointment you have to be responsible about your ear. It’s a way to have control of things that you know you can’t have control over. This is a description of the temporal moment in which you being the object hold two different horizons.
Failure makes things worth doing, as we know there’s the nature when there’s unexpected raining nevertheless forecast. Failure is part of nature; it’s not a mistake. Showing the presence of the non-functional can liberate something.
An error can be physically fixed.
Meteorwrongs are the iconoclasm of meteorites. As man-made objects they managed at least once to shift one’s mind through the atmosphere.
There are many dustless artists. I am not one.
An obsession with milk has to be treated with extra care.
It’s all about how you engage with the world.
We are all familiar with these magical sticks.
