나는 장식을 하면 사물의 진실이 감추어진다고 느낀다. 예를 들어, 일상생활에서 식품을 포장하고 장식하여 소비자가 동물의 죽음에 대하여는 관심을 두지 않도록 유도한다. 장식이라는 개념을 적용하여 관람객이 심지어는 삶과 죽음 등과 같은 보편적인 현상 속에서 현대성을 발견할 수 있도록 하였다.

I feel that by decorating, the truth of things gets hidden. For example, in our lives, the packaging and decoration of our food diverts our attention from the death of animals. By using the concept of decorations you can find modernity even in something universal such as life and death.
