37-39 Clinton St NEW YORK
New York, NY- Space 776 is pleased to present <Semiosis Game> an exhibition of new works by Sung Bok Lee, on view from December 30, 2020 - January 12, 2021, at 37-39 Clinton Street in the Lower East Side.
Sung Bok Lee is an artist who simulates the manipulation of the symbol systems. He focuses on the alterability and the relativity of the symbol systems and presents new decimal number symbols that can replace the Arabic numbers. His newly designed number symbol is called ‘Gradation Number’. Gradation Numbers have long and short tick marks in 36-degree increments in the circular structure. While simulating the manipulation of the symbol system, Sung Bok Lee induces a question about the influence of the symbol system on the human cognitive function.
<Semiosis Game> is a conceptual art project to create a new symbolic system to replace Arabic numbers. The project focuses on the relativeness and the uncertainty of artificially set symbol scheme and presents the ways of re-accessing the representation system based on the symbols.
