Sounds of Berlin
During residency in Berlin, Germany, exploring Berlin is a must, as a capital city and the largest city in Germany, with is 4,5 million residents from over 180 nations. Sound of the city is the first thing attract me all over the city. Various different languages upon German, English and other languages they speak together during the day and faded at night. The panoramic view of the city, the people in it and the sound they produce, shape Berlin into international city. This work try to represented the phenomena, capture the vibe and transform it into a global sound that represent of global community. The sound of Berlin produce within the holes that made at the panoramic print of the city and change into specific tone when the viewer play the device through the holes.

Dancing Gaia merges Japanese anime, kaiju and toy art with South East Asian religious symbols.
as part of “I Like Contemporary, but Contemporary Like It Shiny” series of sculptures. This piece combined Ultraman and Gaia into a contemporary, commercial character who is also (against the odds or in spite of them) a religious relic. Apparently, Ultraman was (in part) inspired by Buddhist statues in Japan.

Pressed Junk series is an idea about how public had their own memory upon memories of an artwork. Borrowing visual language over the form of recycled vehicle that pressed into a box and ready to scrap for another purposes, the pressed junk series pressing the memories upon my recent work as if to get them ready for the next artwork that will be produce.
