‘GIL’ translates to ‘path’ in Oh’s native Korean. ‘GIL’ (global interpreter lock) is a mechanism used by computer-language interpreters to synchronize the execution of threads. This mechanism is similar Oh’s art practice. As an interpreter uses GIL, they allow one thread to execute at a time on a multi-core processor. Similarly, Oh executes one section of weaving or carving at a time, even though there has to be multiple threads of wire or multiple cuts in the sculpture in several directions at a time in each piece. Chaos and order coexist in her practice.
