The series of “Stream” is based on the theme of the preciousness of life. And Seeing emotions as a liquid-flowing-things, I attempt to confirm my existence internally by sensitively and intuitively shaping emotions with porcelain clay.
I like to watch all kinds of emotions surging through me. Even more than that, I love the feeling of swimming in emotions. Feeling emotions helps me confirm that I am alive. This certainty invites me to reject meaning and analysis and just be with what I feel. I believe all emotions, whether they be joy or pain, are all precious because they exist within the realm of Life. The certainty of being alive encompasses the light and the dark, the good and the bad, and all things that are considered opposites.
But as soon as I am distracted, the certainty easily sinks into the depths of my consciousness and disappears instantly into obscurity. The feeling of being alive is shapeless and ephemeral, and I do not know if it really exists or not.
That is why I keep giving forms to my own feelings intuitively using porcelain clay, which is said to have the best shape memory among ceramics. By doing so, I continue to confirm the preciousness of life.
