Chocolate Bars, 2020


Tempered White Chocolate with Inscribed Texts, 2″x2″x22″ each, Dimension variables

This work aims to create a variable structure by casting two by two wooden bars into chocolate and assembling them. This work is based on personal experience with cannabis chocolate. After eating four pieces of it at once, I felt a strangeness in my body and had panic symptoms. I even went to the ER while crying and insulting people verbally around me. Eating the chocolate to have a little happiness of sweetness brought a fear of death. I seek to use other meanings of the word ‘bar’ as a structure, an obstacle, and behind bars as it is illegal for me to take marijuana. I wanted to reveal the irony of the nightmares that little chocolate brought that night.
