The Young-Hae Chang Heavy Industries is a net-art group that was created in 1999 by C.E.O. (chief executive officer) Young-Hae Chang and C.I.O. (chief information officer) Mark Voge. Although they have taken on a “heavy” business name that symbolizes the age of industrialization, they display their work through the internet, a medium that lacks real “substance.” Young-Hae Chang Heavy Industries introduced a series of pieces that achieve visualization through texts with music. Their works do not show the individuality of the artists and can be easily accessed via the internet at www.yhchang.com. The Young-Hae Chang Heavy Industries have a cold attitude toward modern art and times, and thus prepared <MAGISTER DIXIT>(2007) for the Tomorrow exhibition. This piece shows that “tomorrow” will be the same as “yesterday,” and shows a pessimistic and resigned attitude toward modern life and culture.
