I am interested in architectural forms and their impacts on our lives and beyond utilizing Printmaking, Drawing, Digital Art, and Photography. I explore the relationship between structures and visual lines we experience in daily life through various shapes and aspects of the industrial buildings. My work focuses on ephemeral spaces and what is happening inside them, from the way people encounter and disappear within them. I am fascinated by public squares and arcades where the public can freely move around and lots of unexpected events can occur. Especially, I have been influenced by the design of the Italian Piazza, Piazza del Popolo in Rome. I conceive of these spaces as a nexus of random and fleeting meetings, a place where human life comes together in the space between solid forms. I observe this space both as chaotic, full of chance encounters, and also as nothing. My visualizations of these spaces gives me an insight into the layers of people, city, time, and life.
