<artist statement>

A door is physical thing that divides the inside from the outside.
A door is also a psychological thing that connects the inside and the outside.
A door with directional nature is about communication after all.
As the physical and psychological boundary becomes blurred, it creates a landscape that moves in and out.

When I worked for the Asia Craft & Design Project, I got inspiration from Hoi An, Viet Nam for color and image. Using natural materials and applying a production technique used in Hoi An, I intend to suggest objects useful for everyday living in modern times. I reinterpreted the blind and rush sleeping mat used in virtually every house in Hoi An and produced objects for the modern lifestyle.
