Law 2, an installation that is approximately 8 meters long mechanical transmission, and hundreds of light bulbs are being transmitted forward to be destroyed by some kind of cruel hammer. They calm down impatience and greed by self-sacrifice. Meanwhile, destruction is a means to achieve balance. The artist seems to remind us that whether it’s necessary to obey the law of destruction while maintaining rules and orders and sharing power and benefits.
