My work begins with unfamiliarity found in familiar objects or situations. The different images I found in people, objects and places that I know attract my attention. We often passively accept the object in front of me or the situation given to me. That’s why we only see it trapped in that framework. I can’t see more than that. Observing familiar objects until they’re no longer what I’ve known them to be, they become something completely new. The closer I get to the object, the more habitually and inertia I see the form of the object disappears from view. The texture of the surface is visible and my gaze flows in all directions, not one center. As a result, visual images produce tactile sensitivities. This breaks the stereotype that was taken for granted and gives me a chance to rethink it.
