Parasitic Nature demonstrates Chun’s continued interest in peripheral objects, exploring their multiple functions whilst teasing out other latent capabilities.

Several fluorescent tubes are mounted onto a flag pole holder with black bin liners draped over their tips like makeshift flags. Beyond its presence as an ambient banner to illuminate a dark space, it also doubles as an armature, providing a modular structure in which other elements can be perched upon, enabling multiple variations of the same fixture. The light fixture becomes a basic method of gathering materials together for display, like a bunting or a skewer, allowing the artist to easily compose alternate forms just by remixing the content.
