I acquire inspiration and materials for my projects from everyday life. The choice of materials and creation process of my works always reflect situations that I am facing. I have been working as a museum educator for fifteen years, and through conversations with museum visitors, I became more interested in viewers’ diverse ways of looking and interpreting art works. Similar to the open-ended questions I pose to the visitors at the museum, I create my collage works as visualized open-ended questions that foster each individual viewer to find their own way to enjoy the work. SAPC and SAPC Gallery are my on-going projects to create a (over-)simplified miniature of a business and its philanthropic programs. These projects are run with available materials, manpower and technologies. Through SAPC's products and programs, I hope to encourage viewers to reexamine their own definitions of art and non-art.
