Artist Statement

Handmade object made of drift wood, pins and threads. Pins stuck in drift wood, where their tips are tied with threads. It looks like an another crust outside the drift wood, or the three dimensional specimen.

Artist Statement:
"Driftwood has beauty finished their roles,I wrapped it with an artificial polygon composed of straight lines of nature’s organic outside so as to form a new outer skin, so that the beauty of the shape can be understood more by contrasting the double outer skin.

An artificial polygon was born from the organic shape, it became a new crust with a different shape one by one like its own crust."
