<Original color> 2014

Using a special bleaching agent on old and colored fabrics, conducting a process to fade the existing fabric colors, regardless whether these colors are deriving from time erosion or man made dyeing. The aim is to rediscover the original color of the material before coloration. It is an attempt to restore the former appearance. The result of this backward process shows a kind of new and old which is inexplicable.  The ins and outs of the material status quo are hard to determine and also inevitably reveal many unexpected levels and variations, as well as the interactive process between material and time. I would say, a lot of things cannot be restored to the true original even when undergoing the most thorough restoration - starting and ending time are circulating in this process.
