Virginia Woolf, ”To the Lighthouse”
fine silver, sterling silver, crystal
"In this series, I use sheet units that having a delicate texture to convey some hint of organisms. This hint may be complete or slightly damaged, presenting a kind of extract derived from the nature among those lush, soggy and limp sheet aggregations. Some seemingly uncoordinated strip, sheet or linear structures have been added to fix and insert into the aggregations, as well as been given a role of being responsible for the wearing function.
In such a construct, extremely thin and fine materials are intentionally used, and the white color due to the pickling is retained, for the state of these materials perfectly reflecting the frailty with a tendency of being evanescent. Such uncertainty creates a distance between this series of works and the wearers, as well as between these works and the viewers. That is, there still exists a kind of anxiety and alienation even the attraction is obvious.
To the end, whether it had been effective or ineffective, it has become a faint occurrence, continuing to stir in different degrees”
