I tie thread endlessly. It is a natural act. I unconsciously start tying it and then my purpose become clear. The thread I work with is a means of expressing my idea and emotions. The thoughts, speech, and behavior which define my character are largely formed in my inner world. This inner world has been formed and affected by the spirit of my parents, ancestors, and Korean heritage. By connecting the thread from start to finish, I draw on relationships that exist in my life; get inspired by new thoughts, and discover new connections. Everything is affected by everything else. This is a reflection of life and the urge to live; we are unconsciously connected and affected by everything in our past and everything around us. This is the endless cycle of life.
