"My work creates absolute, non-hierarchical situations. In that way, I hope my audiences see/experience absolute, non-hierarchical situations which they might never experience in their everyday lives, and I hope these experiences have a positive effect on their lives.

Hierarchy and sign are social byproducts which are derived from a male-dominated history. Because signs decide the class structure between objects and persons, I attempt to erase or decontextualize sign in objects. I indiscriminately aggregate objects which are defined by a male-dominated society. I interpret these objects democratically, and assemble these objects for female-centered situations. I see objects and images as phenomena which need to be broken down. "
