The body is the final boundary of existing space, and is sometimes also the place where the media world and the pulse of biology encounter each other. Today this realm of life's mysteries has achieved an unprecedented degree of connection due to technology's ability to link what is "internal" and "external."

I want to cause the physicality of the body to disappear in an interlinked visual image system. The intermediary instruments and equipment play the role of understanding and expressing in the space between the body and myself. I have therefore filmed video images of the body, and projected them in extremely enlarged form. I try to expand the breadth of the body's space. Using the images to guide me, the projected form of my naked body facing the wall slowly portrays the inner digestive apparatus of the body.From when foreign objects enter the body to the time they are excreted, the digestive tract is actually a breeding ground for an individual's complex moods: swollen satisfaction, the suffering of anxiety… Those true translated situations have a virtual flavor that can neither be ignored nor overemphasized. I have taken the position of an inn and probed the body's sensitive synapses. The delivery of privacy and surrender of control to others (self) in fact reveals a chilly texture. This texture reflects how contemporary people are caught at the unstable, fluid boundary between self and reality, truth and imagination, and existence and delusion. It has become a true bodily system that presages and connects.

The fear and prudence that must be part of the creative process are reflected as icy tones. This powerfully awareness of a vague anxiety involving love and desire takes indifference as its vehicle body and drives off towards the uncertain state of alienation of the body. Accordingly, the outwardly-visible form of the body is not ended, but rather is a pictorial volume in a prolonged state of decomposition.
