We see the Light in the middle of the dark night

My work can be compared to the plant’s life. Just like sprouting form the seed, my work grows extending its roots into the specific site. Accepting the local nature and the passage of time, it eventually decays and returns to earth. This is reality, not tragedy. My intention is to highlight my own attitude towards epemerarity. Since I realized undeniable aesthetic value in the decaying process, I have been searching for the unique value in ephemerarity.
