About works / performance

I get ideas from my doodles. It is better for me not to think in depth when I draw. Unexpected lines, vague shapes and errors lead me to what I really wanted to do. In other words, this can be considered intuition. In society we are required to behave as rationally and ordered like plywood or an artificial flower.
However, sometimes we naturally make mistakes, we are imperfect, uncertain and vague. Also, I believe these can recover our humanity from the demands of society. I want to reproduce those things in my work and express our existence to re-recognize.
