I address a wide range of topics in my art, including the discovery of the concept of information, perception and consciousness, mistakes or errors in
systems, perfection and imperfection, metabolic regeneration, etc. I am particularly interested in how body image have changed. For example, I imagine how the concept of body image changes through the history of
medicine, beginning with anatomical studies from the thirteenth century to the present time, contrasting Western and Asian cultures. In my work, what you find is meant for you. Everybody can perceive what
they want from my work. It depends on the person.
