The Dark Eating Machine is made of masks that evoke darkness. The artwork moves its numerous teeth in the dark, emitting powerful light to absorb the energy of the darkness and forming a black hole once it has accumulated enough dark. Ujoo+Limheeyoung anticipates that it can serve as a channel connecting with another world. This work creates fictional stories. It tells absurd, nonsensical tales, stories about the unknowable, stories about things that do not exist in reality. Ujoo+Limheeyoung’s will is to send a strong message of hope, suggesting that fiction stories can be used to maintain a certain balance through the connection with other possible universes and directions, in a world where there seems to be only one possibility. In other words, the adding of fictional stories to an uncomfortable-seeming reality is a way of reconstructing the reality itself into a new frame and thus carrying something essential in it.
