I lived in a temple in Lamphum, Thailand to practice meditation. During this time, my consciousness went away from my physical element. In that moment, only breathing connected my body and consciousness.

My works using a 3D pen represent the existence between inanimate elements and living organisms; this divide is obscure. For example, a seed is not regarded as life, yet it contains potential life. Once it sprouts, at some point the seed transitions into a living organism. As the process of living becomes visualized, we consider that it starts to be a life, yet this boundary is unclear. The division between categories of non-life and life appears through the dynamic energy transfer, like the sprouting of a plant. This dynamism is the essence of existence.

To focus on the dynamism energy transfer, like the sprouting of a plant, I use artificial, inanimate materials that transition between liquid and solid. Like the transition from a seed to a sprout, the interval of between solidification and melting embodies the dynamic boundary between emptiness and substance. The repetitive movements of my hands as I draw with this plastic generate a liminal state similar to the practice of meditation. The works in my studio practice represent efforts to respect and appreciate the essence of existence.
