Metal materials have been used as the main element in the works, which can be defined as the reconstruction of the artwork within the framework of shaping possibilities. Through the effects of "time-process-cycle," concepts such as "decay, aging, disappearance, deterioration, decay, traces" are questioned, and the meaning inherent in the material used in the process of visually expressing these concepts becomes a part of the artwork with a different identity during the transformation into an art object. Decay is the first step in the works; in other words, the answer begins when decay occurs, and we have no idea when it will end. The artworks turn their focus towards the process caused by a state that continues in other realms of life, and the continuity of the life cycle begins. Decay, disappearance, and similar concepts, used as metaphors and involving a chemical reaction process such as corrosion, evoke the meaning of abandonment and being rendered out of use, but at the same time, they represent progress, change, and development. The textual area continues as a "surface of life."
