Description:An outline and statement of proposal for "Untitled," an artist book by Cha. See museum# 1992.4.223. The outline and statement were discovered in a file labeled "Book in SF." Cha wrote the texts while living in Oakland, CA. The address is handwritten on the statement.
The statement of proposal reads "This Photo-Essay is a documentation, a recording of events that has occurred in the past. The places photographed are actually existing places of these events, except for the friend's souvenir, which exists in an imaginary space that I have tried to locate physically, to identify and name in the represented image. I am excited by working with this concept, (to grossly simplify) of having the presence of the actual events and the actual places in the image, with the exception of subject. The temporal and spatial value in the represented image seem to introduce a different orientation and meaning for me -I hope to continue in developing further these ideas.
