My work demonstrates various gestures of wires that are interwined with strategies of repetition and system of order. Seemingly without visible structures, the pieces are carefully constructed with my own instinct. I'm fascinated by the infinite expressions of tactility that are offered through the process of handling the materials. By isolating the use of same material (wire), I have become more sensitive to the techniques which are intimately linked to the experience.
