This is a public project called 40.800, which is ancient-cave-style graffiti project that takes place anywhere in the world wherever I go. It has started on September 2014 and then has set an on-going project for a long term. The graffiti is made by stencil and spray paint which look like those of the doodle-looking/primitive figures from the ancient cave. The use of material – spray paint as a modern symbol of urban graffiti, and the primitive figures gather to create a satirical mood. Ancient cave drawing and today’s modern graffiti are overall the same act of mark-making that are messages of “I am here”. It also becomes as archives of myth, cultures and politics at that time and moment the marks were made.

The point of this project is to take place anywhere whether in the woods, abandoned house, street and so on; myself as a mark-maker who stands as a roles of a cave and graffiti artist over the past thousands years, who leaves a trace of existences or messages. In this way, it becomes a mapping process and also a self -assurance of the human-instincts.
