I started to create installation art pieces hoping that I could express bigger beyond the limited scale of canvases. Depends on the work, I sometimes work from a concept and get materials to meet that concept. Sometimes rather than deciding on a specific concept beforehand, I try to be responsive to the site or the materials first. I often start working without knowing what the finished image will be like. While I am executing, I often gain insight into the life of a sojourner, which can be eye-opening and rewarding.
Installation arts are often ephemeral. There is a certain beauty in ephemerality. Our experience in the piece is a once in a life time thing, which makes us think that each moment of our life is important and our life is precious. I hope my installations will send this message to the viewers, and if that happens, that will become the most beautiful thing about my installation arts.
