There are 4 gods in the universe who protect the world: a blue dragon, a white tiger, a red bird, and a black tortoise. And it is thought that there are 2 circles and 36 constellations with different stories in the sky. These are reflected on the Yut game board. Also the gameplay terms, Do, Gae, Gul, Yut, Mo means 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, and at the same time, represent a pig, a dog, a sheep, a cow, and a horse.

Hyo Jee Kang has been focusing on the transformation of media and objects to create a new art form. Her idea for theatrical abstract performing arts is developed via transformation techniques. She is working with media artists and live electronic performers presenting improvisation and recomposed compositions as well as her original pieces. Her activity as a composer, performer, creator and improviser has been featured throughout the world: in Germany, Spain, Italy, Korea, Japan, USA, Israel, and more. Recently she gave a solo performance with a great success at the Lincoln Center including a Conceptual Transformation Performance titled “Pyung Yang."
