Sanghoon Lee ‘It Is Still Impossible…’

‘It is Still Impossible to Exist at Two Places at Once’ experiments to be aware of the gap in between two opposites; right and left, inside and outside, action and reaction, or 0 and 1 in mathematical binary system. Body does not stay on the one side of concept. It exists by the feelings of shaking, judgment about what is right and wrong, identity in society and identity as oneself.
