  Looking at a random object and highlighting its existence is the basis of my practice. After collect the objects from somewhere, I do consider the action of placing them in my studio an important part of the process - the objects lose their sense of randomness and abandonment to start a dialogue between themselves and the surrounding space. My practice is strongly attached to the idea of 'on-going' work. I tend to focus my energy on the process and it's performative act. Across my series of works I am creating a dialogue between weight and lightness, unrefined and delicate, opacity and translucence, order and chaos when using handmade and/ or industrial objects. The playfulness or humor may sometimes be clouded by a certain feeling of melancholy.
