"As a Korean transplant to New York, I ponder the notion of identity and continuously question racial and ethnic divide. My work evolves through a gradual thought process beginning with the selection of ordinary objects used in routine daily consumption. These manufactured goods, like items in a time capsule, represent and preserve ideas of culture. Based upon my observations of social relationships and my personal experiences as an immigrant, I transform groupings of these mundane objects, whether spoons, bottle caps or bowling balls, into installations that depict contemporary narratives of humanity."
