            Change or Trans-hiking is an extension of what the themes explored in Ourler that I am deeply interested in ways viewers connect to and engage with surrealist imagination. This project is an embodiment of a transcendental habitat that threads through the human, the machine, animals and plants, object-things without language, and contemporary liquid concepts flowing through the temporality of past-present-future. I unfolded an ungrammatical cosmology in which objects on a micro scale become political subjects. This entailed giving material form to imagined spaces, from the hideouts of wild animals and microorganisms in urban landscapes to passageways echoing with auditory hallucinations and the deep abyss of the earth as a portal space leading to other worlds.
            In Project Ourler, I combined the fluid movement of liquids, the floating by-products of a city, mosses, plants, and geometric or repetitive and rhythmic objects into a performative piece that explored sound and reverberations through musical collaboration. By creating a sound space where the unknown senses come together to create a 'dissonance of coincidence and unpredictability' that then dwells in that space, the work awakens us to other sensory worlds and systems of thinking from within our contemporary society that has been deprived of its memories and sense-knowledge of reverberations and resonances. Ourler tries to share a multidimensional energy that can face a world of togetherness through an experiential whole called forth through sound and through our senses from elsewhere. It suggests a hybrid coexistence that seeks to connect with a mysterious surreal world that imports primeval or futuristic sensations and imaginations. / Text by Jade Sujin Lee, Artist
