When I asked someone “What is your image of an artist,” the person responded, “Wired.” What then would be an image of a wired person? This conversation led me to do this workshop in which the participants make a small doll like human figure based on her/his image of an artist. By actualizing an image of an artist in ordinary people, the work seeks to address “another aspect” of art. The work contains both the sculptures and video interview of the participants.
