could be regarded as a kind of Fluxus score that is also marked by his humorous. The sentence written in Korean by Paik in acrylic on canvas, “He who looks at this painting for more than one hour will succeed in the stock market,” has the power to stop even those who are not interested in painting. The work is Paik’s criticism about the present situation in which the works of art are consumed and distributed as a commodity in art market, leaving it up to the audience how to respond to the criticism.
