I like to call myself A Walking MAN. I enjoy walking around, particularly I like to walk in Music, Architecture and Nature. That is the M.A.N who constantly enlightens me. Music gives me abstraction, passion and fluidity. I enjoy embodying them and translating between aural and visual. Herbert von Karajan’s visual virtuosity in conducting music evoked my gestural response while listening. I started playing piano. These long-term practices helped me to develop a gestural methodology in many of my works. I called it post-conducting, which is also extended into people’s gesture in space.
Architecture teaches me how to read a space and to find relationships between spaces; Nature ignites me by its randomness and profoundness. I kept trying to embody all those features in my work and in the process. That is why I chose digital media, which enables to create a system rather then a fixed output. With the system, I could enrich my work with a constant flow of structure, a highly complex hierarchy and a controlled randomness and versatility.
I have been struggling to create works that could dialogue with the M.A.N. who inspired me. I will keep walking.
