My work is housed within one project called Encylopedia - a collection of sculptures, objects, drawings, writings, installations and videos.
Simply it could be said this life project serves to order, store and document my practice. This platform is not about intellectual simulation of knowledge, but much more close to daily life, and evolving framework for expression and exploration.
The project started as diary entries of an everyday life, punctuating an ever-progressing stream of making. And it contains a profusion of ordered chaos by various works in parallel. It is like how things order and operate, or what we experience in the world.
The idea behind each project is based around a fantasy narrative or utopian situation, taking reference from memory, dream, nature, humanity, sounds and words.
Materials and making processes are central to my practice and indispensable to my working life. The consideration and production of the works are similar to scientific experimental for me. I believe that my process to be one of constant, vital and unrestricted exploration.
