CONCEPTGO02 represents a visionary fusion of physical and nonphysical structures harmonized through cutting-edge AR technology. 

The project's deliberate choice of name draws inspiration from the rich symbolism of the Japanese homophone 'GO,' which embodies multiple meanings, including 'five' (五), 'pleasure' (娯), 'perceive' (悟), 'protect' (護), and 'together' (互). This intentional selection reflects the project's overarching goal of unveiling the latent meanings that underpin humanity's structural rules.

By linking the concept of 'GO' with foundational systems such as the Five Elements of Chinese philosophy and the five Platonic solids, GO02 seeks to evoke a sense of wonder and discovery. This exploration invites viewers to indulge in the magical act of finding significance within the cosmic coincidences.

Physical and Virtual Integration
At the heart of GO02 lies NowHere Gallery, serving as the focal point for physical light sculptures, including GO02_ONENESS, and five virtual sculptures accessible via smartphones. This integration of physical and virtual elements creates a dynamic and immersive art experience that transcends traditional boundaries.

Exhibition Journey
Visitors to NowHere Gallery will encounter a captivating display of physical light sculptures alongside virtual sculptures accessible via smartphones. Here, they can delve into the project's conceptual framework and engage with the artworks in both tactile and digital dimensions.

Citywide Exploration
The exhibition extends to five selected locations across Manhattan, each offering a unique backdrop for the virtual sculptures. Through the GO02 custom geolocation app, viewers can discover these ephemeral artworks, adding vibrancy to the cityscape and blurring the boundaries between the real and the virtual.

Impact and Significance
Post-Lockdown Exploration: As we emerge from a year of lockdown, the timing of GO02 feels serendipitous. It offers a timely opportunity for viewers to rediscover the world with fresh eyes and embrace the transformative power of art and technology.

Community Engagement
Through social media sharing and community participation, GO02 fosters dialogue and connection, encouraging viewers to reflect on the project's themes and meanings. It serves as a catalyst for collective exploration and discovery.

GO02 is more than an art installation. It is a testament to the boundless possibilities of human creativity and ingenuity. By bridging the gap between the physical and virtual realms, the project invites viewers on a journey of exploration and introspection, challenging them to rethink their perceptions of art, space, and reality.
