With the ‘boundaries’ that surround us as my long-time theme, I have been mainly creating and exhibiting installation artworks. My art production has recently been conducted with the aim to discover, through ‘spatial experiences,’ our unconscious behaviors and recognition in everyday life, which are controlled by the external forces, and to set them free in the subconscious. As things and events of their original meanings are dissolved and purified, the elements commence sublimating. It is my belief that a methodology to let ourselves loose from the powerful magnetic field that rules us in our unconscious realm and to be released into the subconscious can be found right here.
