  • My practice is developed from my immense interest in cosmetics. I seek to explore a variety of traditional materials and techniques used in the cosmetic manufacturing industry. I am interested in playing and matching everyday matters to create bacteria-like components. My work aims to show the so-called "Superficial" relationship between cosmetics, chemistry and biology with cheerful and vivid installations and sometimes photographs. My works are usually made in response to the space where they will be shown.
