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”.
This is in progress

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.”

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?

I used recycled, found, borrowed materials except ceramics for this installation. It was to be redeemed from the last project for using bunch of toxic materials.
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.
