Concept
The Japanese homophone 'GO' has a multitude of meanings. In Japanese-Chinese characters, though these words are pronounced similarly to each other, their purposes differ. 'Go' can simultaneously mean 'five' (五), 'pleasure' (娯), 'perceive' (悟), 'protect' (護), and 'together' (互).

The goal is to reveal the latent meanings that arbitrate humanity's rules of structure. She finds inspiration in some of the most foundational systems—the Five Elements of Chinese philosophy and the five Platonic solids. In linking these concepts with “GO” and its five meanings, CHiKA indulges in one of the primary purposes of art - the magical act of finding significance within the coincidences of the cosmos.

The physical heart of GO02 is at NowHere Gallery. Here you can view her physical light sculptures, including GO02_ONENESS, as well as these five virtual sculptures using your smartphone.
