Artist's Work

Playing Space Sires

    Work introduction

    By making the plaster mold into a block to be able to move its position, it can be transformed into various forms and textures can be freely selected. This work has the fun of reminding new artistic inspiration because it makes it possible to produce various sizes and forms by displacement by small movement of module in one frame. By incorporating the subframe that corresponds to the loop of DNA into the basic framework, the artist's formative language is completed with mutations or evolved entities of other traits projected. The ceramic sculptures named “playing space sires” are evolving architecturally by uniting them into mechanical and structural modules that encompass the shapes of inorganic and organic. These changes can continuously release new information from the sculptures.
