With critical awareness of Mother Nature and the environment, I pursue fusion between creative construction and ecological practice through my art. My exploration between social science, art, and ecological engineering result in artworks. My interest lies in expanding the concept of “artificial nature” as it manifests itself in such forms as urban gardens and backyards and developing fully-fledged art-making projects. On the occasion of Bethanien Residency program, I plan to compare and contrast the presence of Nature in the urban landscape of Seoul and Berlin.
