Biography: Korean, 1996

“My creations encapsulate all the precious entities that have faded into history, serving as protective cocoons for these treasures. Today, we are confronted wi th numerous environmental challenges, such as the climate crisis, extreme weather phenomena, plastic pollution, species extinction, and the discharge of contaminated water from Fukushima, among others.  

Our reality seems bleak, teetering on the brink of despair.

The trajectory of humanity appears to be steering towards a barren ecosystem, devoid of life. Yet, I firmly believe there is a glimmer of hope even in this desolate landscape. Whenever I feel my resolve faltering, I promise to seek out that sliver of hope.

The treasures we have enjoyed, and continue to cherish, are testaments to our capacity for change. They are worth our efforts to safeguard. I pledge to continue to practice what I can do each day to contribute to this change”
