Celestial bodies in space, the aurora borealis in the night sky, and the topography of the earth… Geoscience and the world of space has always evoked my curiosity. ‘How would it be formed?’ This question fascinates me in the moments when materials are being shaped and coloured.

My work changes according to various factors such as the concentration, temperature, direction, and angle of the materials. It resembles the world of space and earth sciences, where every element affects one another. Expectations are possible but not accurately predicted.

The process of imagining beyond the landscape and at the same time capturing the moments of reaction between materials evokes the feeling of showing a huge universe through a small lens. Clear glass works as a magnifying lens enabling us to observe closely – microscopically replacing a macro object with an object in front of us.

Focusing on energies acting upon materials, provides a spontaneous working method and creative mindset. An exploration into the phenomena of material allows the material itself to create its own narrative. This opens up diverse interpretations from viewers and evokes their curiosity in turn.
