3 can do what 4 does; balancing, and supporting. However, 3 does it just a bit more mysteriously, and economically.

A while back, I did a few drawings for Nicole Martinell, artistic director of Deep Vision Dance Company, upon request. I wasn’t thinking much more than the movement and the relations of bodies. Nicole later made a piece called "3"  that is based on these drawings and my statement. I do and don’t see my contribution, the dance piece is far more sophisticated and of it’s own. Still, it’s an honor.  Rick Westerkamp wrote a review on “3”.

A wallflower is not a wallflower until one calls it a wallflower; the one who does not approach.
“I believe that stereotyping is a universal means of coping with anxieties engendered by our inability to control the world.”
-Sander L. Gilman
The four crafted shapes are the illustration of my ideas about cycle and interdependency. The piece is made to be functional as both indoor and outdoor seating, while also being light enough to be carried easily. This is my effort for connection, I want more than spectators to my work. It can be interactive, interpreted as an odd- shaped bench and classified as craft, or it can be analyzed at a distance of its ideas and emotions and be an art object. It can be both, either, or neither. Who’s a wallflower now?

인간은 재물을 위해 자신의 건강을 희생하고, 그 건강을 회복하기 위해 재물을 희생한다. 그는 너무나도 미래를 걱정하는 나머지 현재를 즐길수 없고, 그 결과 그는 미래에도 현재에도 살지 못한다. 그는 마치 영원히 존재 할듯 살지만, 사실 단 한번도 살지 않은체 죽음을 맞이하고 만다. - 달라이 라마 , 인류의 무엇이 그를 가장 놀랍게 하는지 에 대한 답변.

"Man sacrifices his health in order to make money. He then sacrifices his money to recuperate his health. He is so anxious about the future that he doesn’t enjoy the present and as a result he doesn’t live in the present or the future. He lives as if he’s never going to die and then he dies having never really lived." - The Dalai Lama, when asked what about humanity surprises him the most.

old fiend told me while ago. something awful happened in Korea. Let’s together, keep our visions clear. 

In, “There are Many Mountains Where I am From,” I use ceramics, cement, and fabric to make mountains that function as weights and as bells that suspend various kinds of strings. The suspended strings and hanging ceramic bells become an instrument which the audience can interact and play.

The mountains represent mother, home, and utopia. However the floating mountains don’t give the sense of security. It is the displacement, and detachment that motivated displaying a bird’s eye view of the hovering landscape.
