About Artist

The art works or the model of buildings that I make focus on the spaces that I have experienced, reproducing the authentic impression and atmosphere these spaces give off. I arrange the most basic architectural conditions like the size and the structure of a room, the location of a window, and intensity of the light in order to capture the unique aura in three dimensional building structures. Through the eye of the camera I have been researching how the authentic aura of each space is experienced by certain visual conditions. The camera could be understood as a tool to investigate the relation between the physical and perceptive locations.
