Perspectives on Tradition and Future, Sustainability and Fashion, and Life.

Mulberry paper used in my work comes from sustainably managed forests that act as carbon sinks absorbing carbon dioxide. Paper companies harvest wood in a sustainable fashion, ensuring no loss of forest land for future generations. Trees can also be replanted and reduce wildfire risks. Paper is sustainable by being easily recycled, reducing the need for virgin timber, which mitigates deforestation.

The Concept and Description of the Work關於參展作品的創作動機與設計理念

I love paper!The secret of paper making migrated in the third century from China, to Vietnam, Tibet and by the fourth century to Korea andJapan. Joomchi is a traditionalKorean technique of feltingMulberryfibers(Hanji).The process is quite meditative and joyful, even though it requires lot of energy and strength. Joomchi enables me to play with the structure, to alter the properties of the fibers from smooth leather-like to strong textural paper. Iaminterested in creating pieces that can be changed or adjusted in the process while the basic fiber content remains present. Since nothing in life is permanent, the idea of deliberately working with impermanence of paper seems very natural. 

我喜歡紙!紙張製作的秘密在公元三世紀從中國傳入越南、西藏,到了公元四世紀傳至韓國和日本。Joomchi 是一種傳統的韓國技術,用於毛桑纖維(Hanji)的氈毛。這個過程相當冥想和愉悅,即使它需要大量的能量和力量。Joomchi 讓我可以玩弄結構,改變纖維的性質,從光滑的皮革狀到強韌的紋理紙。我對創作可以在過程中變化或調整的作品感興趣,而基本的纖維成分仍然存在。由於生活中沒有什麼是永恆的,故意地與紙的無常性合作的想法似乎非常自然。
