'Tiny things only once.... to breathe in the light'
Video / Drawings / Book


Observation is my identity It is my daily routine to take photos every day. What my eye meets and what I find changes from moment to moment.
Observing how a new story germinates in the cut-out landscape.
The story is my identity.

Each piece is small. (For example 16x12cm, 15x15cm). This size, which can be carried on one hand, represents everyday life in my sense.
