How the work activates:
1. A smartphone is installed on the ordering table in cafe.
2. People can place their orders to the smart phone.
3. The smart phone recognizes only the letter A(r) and T ; in Korea, r is almost silent in the word Art. Only when these two letters are combined, the work ArT is put into operation.
4. When the piece operates, all the lights in the café are turned off and the space becomes a dark place for a moment.

As there is no menu called ‘art’ in the menu, the work ArT operates only when the two letter combine together. Sometimes, art looks far from our daily lives. The probability of the work ArT being put into operation is as slim as that of people in the café striking up a natural conversation about art.
