I create visual contemporary myths for our cognitive evolution.
My imageries are derived from various sources, such as archetypal dream images and staged/actual scenes.

Various narratives will be enacted in each viewer's mind depending on one's cultural/social background and personal experiences, in which
the audience is encouraged to create the totemic author-work-viewer relationship; in this process, both imageries and ideas do not lose their
own significances.
