Artist Statement
   create works that evoke a fundamental recognition of our space and environment and imply physical vulnerability in our daily life. These ideas evolved from my interest in studying the similarities between human and non-human life forms pertaining to structures, symbols, and patterns. The main concept is a fascination with the comparison of human activity and natural phenomena as it corresponds to the circulation of destruction and creation. My work consists of installations often made out of found objects and common products. In giving these everyday materials new meanings and aesthetic possibilities, I strive to actively practice the concepts of the Eastern philosophies of the circulatory life system and the continuous flow of connections. I re-create or manipulate the materials into a likeness of natural forms to embody new contexts of physical existence, in a sense, mimicking the fundamental force of survival and growth. By attempting to understand characteristics of different life systems and their associations with our own entity as my subject matter, I intend to introduce new visual dialogue and meanings for ephemera in life to define conflict associated with contradictions inherent in nature and society, such as physical fragility and danger, ephemeral and perpetual, creation and extinction.
