Artistic Statement   


  To me, sound is the result of an unchoiceable sense. As a result, the creation process employing this is the outcome of selection in situations where choice is impossible, and the finished work is the result of selection in situations where choice is impossible. This is based on my personal experience. My artwork mirrors my life in terms of choice and experience. Just as I can't return to the crossroads of my previous life, whether the direction of creation produces the desired or unintended result, I make up the sound and move on to the next stage. That procedure makes me think of a prism. This is my life's purpose and the attitude I seek from my artwork. 


  To the naked eye, light is monochromatic. Numerous people, however, understand that there are many hues in one light. The reason for this is that we dismantled the light with a prism and saw the various colors in it. As a result, people are no longer duped by light's deceit, and they have realized that rainbows are the dispersion effect of light. In other words, the prism brings to the fore the essence of visual information received through the eyes. Prisms never cease searching for the essence. In this way, I hope my artwork will act as a prism for the audience. Not to quit researching the essence, not to accept fastidious information, and not to fall for virtualization and replication. This is the path I'm on, and it's why I use prism as an example.
