나는 신성한 건축물에서 문양의 모티브를 찾는다. 특히 회교 사원과 고딕 성당을 참조한다. 나는 이런 건축물에서 찾은 문양들을 디지털 기법을 활용하여 수정하고 슬로팅 작업을 거친 후 결합하여 현대에 맞게 만든다. 내 작품의 핵심은 고독에 대한 추구, 그리고 건축물 문양이 이러한 경험을 어떻게 촉진 시킬 수 있는가를 다루는 데 있다.

In my work, I reference pattern motifs from sacred architecture, in particular Islamic mosques and Gothic cathedrals. I am interested in adapting and modifying these patterns by digital means and slotting and combining them in ways that reference contemporary times. The main focus of my work deals with the search for solitude and how patterns within architecture facilitate this experience.
