“In this fast paced world, one may overlook things such as materials, especially fiber and other mass-produced materials as we tend to take them for granted. In the process of making this artwork -titled Pedicle Reeds- I tried to understand the physical limits of these materials by pushing them to their breaking points, while working within the boundaries of their limitations. This action-based process thus creates an intimacy towards the materials.”
