I use the art making as a tool of exploration with each moment as evidence of self-growth. I am interested in uncovering the relationship between the internal and the external, and how consciousness can be revealed. Through the medium of photography, installation, and performance video, I transform my subconscious experience into a visible object as a way to understand time and identity. My works, which reflect upon my personal life experience and mental struggles, enable me to explore the psychological process of people digesting language burdens, diverse religious beliefs, cultural differences, social events, etc. Although my processes will eventually be ignored in history beyond recognition and disappear into worthless dust, the value remains in investigating my own process of thinking.
