  His overwhelming artworks, that floating among dark and light space, release the energy in silence. He catches the side of object and phenomenon through metal sculptures like we can see from ‘Aero-interface(2012)’ that is composed with hundreds of pipes that draw viewers attention and overwhelms the space, ‘Active Layer(2014)’ that randomly pauses the 3D printer in order to print portion of bird body and places between mirrors, to ‘Garden(2015)’ that paints the aluminum bar with the familiar colors from exist playground or garden and ramdomly extracts, assembles, arranges them so that viewers can visualize the scene of garden.

  Garden is the collective space that represents the one social, culture of life and art. His garden is composed with elements that are essential in human life and visually represented the process of modulization of those elements. Also, he mentions each individual is only one portion of world that is extremely modulized, not speical being. He reflects the contemporary social structure by focusing the social function that art contains and highlighting the harmony between attention and meditation on social and political aspect.
