My work has always been based on the behaviour of the human physical body and the culture of personal experience.
The previous work explored the individual body and mind. In order to extend this exploration, I have turned my attention from the human physical body to the field, and it is also the human activity in some specific places, for example, festivals, rituals, or celebrations. A discussion of the authenticity of memory is derived from observations of the development of different social rituals.
The primary way humans remember is by encoding information, and the simplest form of encoding is to categorize information and then store it separately. It is because of this sloppy way of encoding and storing memories that the process of decoding recollections tends to result in various errors. Research has shown that memory distortion, like hallucinations, is the result of a malfunctioning brain. The brain is extremely susceptible to memory errors in chaotic states such as overwork, tension, excitement, and terror, such as treating the unknown as known, fiction as reality, and the past as the future.
I express the change of memory through the creation of pseudo-documentation of images, re-construction of sounds, and distortion of everyday things.
