In the installation »Expanding Simplicity« enamelled copper wires with a cross-section of 0.15 mm and 400 m long are fitted to a fractal form. With this material – used as a resistance – WONBAEK SHIN generates electric tension without the employment of electronic components. Due to the infinite repetition of its complex shape and craft the fragile structure generates a circuit with 230 volts which causes a small light bulb of 6 volt to glow. The artwork, a square based material image, comprises 2 levels: The process of production and the result. The artwork, carefully handcrafted like a fabric over weeks, reminds on traditional weaving techniques. Following the time span the rhythm and the repeating hand movings engender a state of mental concentration and self-absorption. Regarding the object the complexity of the visual surface and its elaborated texture seem to blur into an elementary electric process. The complexity of the object transforms into ”expanded simplicitiy”.
