Describe your approach to teaching. 

My approach to teaching is to challenge students’ thought and making processes through experimentation with different ideas and materials, attempting to express personal stories or interests in life. 

What inspires your own work?

With an interest in structure and the viewer’s perception, my work reveals invisible structures of objects and materials, through visual or physical transformation, and depicts the meaning of their existence.
