"Square is not the same shape"
"We are all the others each other"
Square is a flat shape with four sides of equal length and four angles of 90°. However, it appears various shapes from different viewpoints.
Who am I? I see myself constantly changing according to different situations and different people. And my images evaluated by the others could be unfamiliar. We are all the others each other. I try to apply the way we judge people to the way I judge myself. By understanding and embracing 'differences', I want to understand the world better with liberal mind.

“Life itself is continuation of tensions.
The track left by a bicycle is a straight line but it is a straight line made by a round wheel. The straight line can be considered as a part of an endless circle.
Differences between people, religion and race, create small arguments that expand into large wars. If the finite concept of life could be seen from the perspective of infinite time and space, it may be considered all the same. I wanted to express the tension created by differences as a ‘peace’ made up of the interaction between the straight lines and circles in the positive way.”
