“My work is more concentrated in the correlation between the volume and the other volume or the surrounding environment rather than creating a simple structure with one volume. I think that the tension between different objects or even the air currents and sound waves that revolve around them are part of my working environment In particular, since the work will be placed in a public space means that it is a complex work that requires me to consider the people who come into contact with this work, the surrounding environment, and even their movements.The foundation work for my sculptures or plane work, and VR work facilitates improvisational spatial expression and understanding of volume.”
