The Forest that Leads to You
Whenever I hear anything from the outside
I can weave affection from the yarn
that is light that then freely illuminates my mind
From the ‘life’ that started in the ancient period
it has evolved many number of times
then I live now
then I meet you here
How can I tell you about this pleasure?

My unifying theme is 'expressing the conditions of life'. The phenomena of life, such as living, dying, movement, growth and evolution come from relationships with different environments. I try to express those relationships in my works.
I am always trying to create an atmosphere of space or the other side of the world through the object that I make.
One of the reasons I use glass is its possibility to be broken any moment. It looks delicate, frail, and fragile.
I am interested in the phenomenon of looking at the glass object, the way one’s body automatically senses the fragility and feels the tension and open up their five senses.
