As a result from long spanned study and research on modernization of tradition, I found Yinyangwuxing thoughts lead
up to Hegelian dialectic philosophy by itself and a genesis, development, rise and fall of all things(物換星移)was based
on the laws of Wuxingshengke五行生克 Wuxing五行 consists of 5 directions=5 colors=5 elements.
One monad is as follows
According to the fact above mentioned, I earned totally 120 monads after changing directions and colors at the same time
(24 monads positioning yellow at the center, 24 monads blue at the center, 24 monads white at the center, 24 monads black at the
center, 24 monads red at the center each.)
I dubbed its proper number from 1 to 120 to each monad and jotted down its proper number on 5x5cm paper slips which were
folded 2 times in half in both length and width. I mixed and shaked them altogether in the box and tossed them in the air.
After fallen on the ground, they are taken according to being near from the thrower's body. The numbers of paper slips taken were written on the notebook in the order of slips taken.
These 120 monads obtained on the basis of aleatory are regarded as the fixed result. If not, I am confused with various sources available.
81st monad represents yellow(north), blue(east), white(center), red(west), black(south). 56th one represents blue(north), white(east),
black(center), yellow(west), red(south). Generations and inhibitions were risen i.e affinities(reliances) and repellances(restrictions)
occur by changing direction of 5 elements on the aleatory Wuxingshengke basis.
It is called 5-element-generation-inhibition theory(Wuxingshengke五行生克): wood generates fire, fire generates earth, earth generates metal, metal generates water and earth inhibits water, earth inhibits wood, water inhibits fire, water inhibits earth, metal inhibits wood, metal inhibits fire, fire inhibits metal, fire inhibits water, wood inhibits metal, wood inhibits earth, Same element relies on each other.
On the reliance(generation) and repellence(inhibition) of 5 elements basis, enumerated elements are put separately or closely between two elements. However the problem was how I represent it in a form . All things are composed of micro-elements and the composed body has the best form by a certain law.
I expressed my thoughts borrowing the most common body, an apple, and using the most popular computer in both mentality and matter
with modernization of tradition completed at present day.
It is my intention that I want Cezanne's apples to be superseded by apples produced by me.
I selected a computer as printmaking media on the basis of "I AM A MACHINE我卽機械" mentioned the way of selection pages 886,887 of Encyclopedia of Prints authored by me and published on my own account in 1991 in Seoul, Korea
Outside of outline of an apple are lenticula of photopraph. These lenticula express an extinction and disappearance of an apple ended up to its life. Even though we cut this apple in every direction, every section represents 5-element-generationinhibition law applied.
I made this apple suiting to the 2008 Beijing Olympics applying 5 great continents containing Blue(Europe), Yellow(Asia), Black(Africa),
Green(Oceania), Red(America) in Olympic flag by using aleatory Wuxingshengke basis above mentioned, by exchanging white(water of Wuxing,
5 elements) into green(continent of Oceania) and expressed "We are the One我們是一個同世界“
This Big Apple which consists of about 100 million polygons is the complete, harmonized and peaceful Earth. The Big Apple is the symbol of the New York city of U.S.A. also. As I donated two prints of 3 Eighteenths of a Big Apple on the aleatory Wuxingshengke五行生克 basis at the 21st Exhibition of Philoprint Pintmakers' Association Seoul, Korea 2008 invited and held by Luxun Academy of Fine Art, Shenyang, China repaying them for hospitable treatment. It is collected at the Department of Printmaking at the Luxun Academy of Fine Arts, Shenyang, China.
작품제작의 정신적 틀은 동양의 고대 전통 철학인 음양오행사상에 바탕을 두고 있습니다.
전통의 현대화에 대해 오랫동안 고구考究한 결과, 음양오행사상이 헤겔의 변증법철학과 맞닿아 있으며 만물의 흥망성쇄物換星移가 오행생극五行生克에 바탕을 두고 있다는 사실을 알게 되었습니다. 오행은 5가지 방위 =색깔=원기元氣로 되어 있습니다.
