Entry Description

I incorporate Roland Bart's semiotics and the concept of time in Heidegger's books in my work. As a result, I found value in hierarchy and stratification of the meaning of one symbol and object, and assembled the concept from there. In the concept of time, The act of laborious acts or the act of taking time mean that the producer uses the time until his death for production. In other words, production acts can be said to the gorgeous act of time using until the death of the author. So I created a delicate object by glass, but at the same time it contains a heavy context of death of the producer. I tried to add the semantic value and the concept of time for used mass product shelf. This silver ball is called "PACHINKO" in japan. One ball have 4 JPY value in japan. I used 50000 balls this work.
