I was staying in New York between 20th April and 27th May, 2010. My boredom of my life there brought the work to the world. After spending two weeks being a tourist, I tried to imagine how I would spend the rest of the days if I lived there. Therefore, I stopped spending so much time in Manhattan but walked around the place I lived (Brooklyn), looking for surprises at 99 CENT ONLY STORES.

When life returned to routine, the desire to make some art emerged. The materials I had were mostly various sizes of metals, a.k.a. coins.

I focused on the heads, wondering how they looked so different from the real people (mostly African-Americans and Latin Americans) in my life in New York.

The work symbolizes nothing, but it criticizes something. I didn’t particularly stage the work. I only found some daily objects and put them in the scenes. For me, leaving the work on the road was the best way for it to speak to people.
