Untitled (the sand grain story)
Cha, Theresa Hak Kyung
Typewritten text is by Cha. The text is similar to museum# 1992.4.95. The text begins: "this is one of the pages where the
sand grain story begins. this is one of the pages where the sand grain kept itself. has since left. thirteen years ago. it
was thirteen years ago. maybe fifteen". The black and white photograph is of a hand. The 20 photocopies and the signed/
dated photocopy are reproductions of the typewritten text and photograph.
The work was possibly intended to be an artist book by Cha. The pages are photocopies of the original text and photograph.
As Cha copies the text and photograph repeatedly the text and photograph possibly become "one of the pages where the sand
grain story begins". The story is repeated over and over as sand symbolizing time in an hour glass repeats. As sand of the
soil moves and evolves.
