This book is made of sentence «There is an egg on the table» with some variations of this, and simple drawings. This book digs deep into the abstractness of language by combining the number of cases of«a sentence» and the drawings representing «a sentence». That means that the idea that we can describe and say exactly this world by language is almost illusion. This book shows sharply this abstractness of language as if there are infinite numbers between two natural numbers. At the same time we can enjoy this book like a joke without seriousness.
Hwang Eunyoung is interested in the relation between language and images. She likes rock music and dry humour. She draws such things and makes them into books.
