In contemporary society, everything moves ahead so fast day by day, with which people are forced to busy themselves. I am fascinated by a certain atmosphere that is created when those busy people stop and stand still. The atmosphere lasts just for an instant, in comparison with the almost eternal timespan of universe, but it has power to make me feel the moment is indeed contiguous with both distant past and future.

Every passing moment in “now” , which appears and disappears according to the law of nature, just like human life itself. With my work, perpetually asking what the universe is all about, I try to express the essence of nature through the calm spatiality generated by people still.
