나의 작품 의도는: 내가 지난 5년간 개발해오고 있는 연구와 실험결과를 마무리 짓고, 손작업과 상반되는 디지털 기법을 사용하여 점토 작업을 하는 것에 대하여 이야기하고, 특이한 도구와 과정을 통하여 개인적인 언어를 개발하는 데 대하여 이야기하고, 몰드를 단지 반복적인 생산에만 사용하는 것이 아니라 창의적으로 사용할 수 있는 방법에 대하여 이야기하고, 이와 같은 과정을 통하여 새로운 대작들을 창작하는 것이다. 현재 알프레도 가마에서 80-100cm 높이의 오브제를 제작하고 있는 중이다.

For the past five years I've been developing and experimenting with a process of slip-casting into cardboard molds. This process allows me to design forms in CAD 2d and 3d environments, and then print and laser-etch the surface of the molds to create pattern and image. All these processes are then transferred to the clay via casting in the mold. Throughout the course of making, I am constantly asking questions of the objects, the processes and myself: what does it mean to be working with clay digitally? If process is meaning, then by making unique tools am I inventing a personal language? How can I use molds creatively, not just for repeated production of multiples? And more recently - "digital" usually connotes a certain physical size (small-ish), so what happens when "digital" appears as a large-ish object.
