보편적인 아름다움이란 무엇인가? 미시적 삶과 거시적 우주의 형태는 어떤 것인가? 나는 수학에서 작품에 대한 영감을 얻어 뫼비우스 반지 등과 같이 수학의 법칙을 활용한 다양한 패턴들을 적용하였다. 설치작품의 5가지 형태는 자연 철학의 순환을 상징한다.

What is universal beauty? What is the form of micro life and macro universe? My work is inspired by mathematics. There are different patterns that abide by mathematical rules such as the Mobius strip. And the five forms of installation symbolize the circulating natural philosophy.
