For the coming years I want to build up on my research named ‘Also-Space’. This I want to do by looking into art-practices in mainly the Benelux and South-East Asia. It is important not to give an exotic view on Southeast Asian art practice. It is better to find similarities in practices here in the Benelux and there.
I am working on the work of ART which based on designing and I am interested in contemporary culture. Being a hybrid mix of an artist and a product designer has triggered me to notice the changing of contemporary culture up to now. It has also encouraged me to question on the values, the new aesthetic feeling, and the objects surrounding me. Moreover, this form of art has introduced me to see things from different point of view in order to manage or utilize any available materials appropriately.

I am creating my works by events, tours and records of performances and statues about '' Expansion of body by materialization of body ''. I intervene in nature, human groups and social system, and consider how each human should be in community, and practice how wide we can expand our body (not only outside, but also inside). Through these practices, I think we can re-measure gigantic affairs as human scale.
