LIFE

All of the characters on each piece are the same, "LIFE/生". In 2009, I began to write a character "LIFE" continuously on small pieces of paper to pray for children who died due to hunger-related causes. One day when I gazed at many of the "LIFE" pieces on a wall in my studio, each of the characters looked like faces and figures of people. At that moment, I have just thought of an idea that I would express diversity through my works. All of the characters are the same, "LIFE" but each one has different expressions on various kinds of paper from around the world. If there are a hundred people, there are a hundred ways of life.
