Observing conformity to a standardized social system, I felt constrained by the conservative perspective of virtues. So I attempted to question the prescriptions for virtuous behavior. I create works that draws attention to societal norms to make participants aware of values which they internalized without questions.
I use a light as a primary medium and particularly aim to employ three-dimensional holographic displays as my artistic medium. Floating volumetric images are an unconstrained form without any spatial and temporal confinements. It makes sculpture movable and it also makes video volumetric. I explore the physical presence of digital images and how it involves the immersive experience.
