For me, daily objects are kind of magic stuff can that people understand each other without language, even under the limitations of a language barrier, through the body's memory of how to use items used in daily life, while in a foreign country, I was still able to live as I had back home. In different countries, as long as the everyday items used are the same, then the body's memory of how to use these items can be commonly applied in any country.

I care about the relationship between local people and the daily objects like consumables around them. I believe that daily consumables are a major element to represent the taste, the style, and the most important—the spirit of a city.

Thus, in this project, I would like to use some objects that can be seen everywhere but might be overlooked. I will mix the daily activities and ordinary objects in order to create whole new experiences in real life. Using the most fitting method to demonstrate the appeal of the material used while also providing an appropriate response to the state of our lives comprises the thought process which serves as the basis of my works. Through the transition from old to new experiences, the daily objects complete their life journey.

In terms of form, every piece of work was made using everyday objects, taking a single object (of several of the same type of objects) and using it as the focal point of the creation. In the end, as each of these pieces of work are placed together at the exhibition, an environment similar to an everyday setting is created. Aside from the major senses of mass, volume and physical sensations, the visual sensation created is also unique. The intent is to develop a new context for us to reflect on the relationships between these objects. Under this context, these pieces reflect not only the changes of time, but are also a type of extension of space. Not only are each of these works an independent entity, but in the development process, have managed to become a group or collective body, mutually complementing one another.
