My practice expresses the personal curiosity of the contemporary individual. Everything has been liquified, everyone has been liquified.  However, the liquidity is still unknown to us who have habitually leaned on the firmer structure. How can we survive in this fluid world? Maybe we need to lighten up, soften ourselves to eventually float to survive here, as a god.

To seem like a god, my strategy is to duplicate and spread my symbol by mass-producing products to lighten my existence. For salvation, I suggest massaging someone’s exhausted muscles softer by using wellness industrial props. Therefore, the products I created are phenomenon trigger tools. Thus, please do not pay too much attention to the product itself. Rather, please be curious about the phenomena that the product will cause. 

Ahn Sung Hwan (b.1989, Seoul, South Korea) majored in chemical engineering and product design and also belonged to a theater collective. After graduating in contextual design from Design Academy Eindhoven in 2019, he has been conducting various experiments on liquefied individuals between South Korea and the Netherlands.
