Despite the universal principle that flora and fauna have finite lives, I believe that all matter continues to live on even after losing its shape. My concept is based on the idea that life continues to exist in an imperceptible sphere even after its external form disappears.
For instance, by re-shaping a dinosaur from a shoe sole originally derived from fossil fuel, I express the journey of the material from past to present. Further, by erasing images from various forms of printed matter and using the leftover eraser crumbs to accurately resculpt the figure that has been erased, I show how easily the absolute value of the original image can be eliminated. The main feature of my work concerns this constant search for the essence of my chosen subject.
The fundamental idea of reincarnation in Buddhism holds that all things circulate by endlessly changing their outer appearance. I receive inspiration for my works from everyday life and its ties to the distant past.
