미디어아트와 도예라는 서로 다른 예술 장르가 나의 작업에 상호 영향을 미친다. 움직임과 공간적 환상에 기초한 미디어아트는 사진, 움직임, 음향을 결합하여 복합적 문맥을 만들어낼 수 있게 해줌으로써 정적으로 보이는 오브제에 생명을 불어넣는다. 반면 도예는 입체적 형태와 소재를 통하여 나를 현실의 세계와 물질적 에너지와 연결해준다.

Media Art and Ceramic Art are two fields, which mutual influences determine my artistic activity. The first based on a movement and space illusion allows me to revive seemingly still objects and build complex contexts integrating the picture, movement and sound; the second one throughout three dimensional form and material connects me with the real world and its physical forces.
