Comment

I'm working on making it visible and materialize that invisible relations and stories between human and environments. From the process which is inspired from the method to edit videos, I create my artworks by re-editing the human, objects and environments with various images such as videos, objects, and photos. The range of my concept is from myth and cultures to our daily events and trying to find the common point between quantum theories and outlooks on the universe which exists various primitive worships and cultures.
