Whenever I miss springtime, I pull out some letters with pressed flowers I have received in the past. I wanted to preserve not just the flower, but also memories I want to cherish forever. In May, in front of the benches at the National Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art is depictions on semi-transparent glass, and the sunlight and air which filter through this glass are something I want to preserve as well. In order to visualize this image, I tested a few materials and made them so that they are semi-transparent and easily affected by the wind.

As a result of many memories piling on top of each other, the direction I wish to pursue is tied together by a certain time and space. A subject I am interested in and the perspective in which it is viewed have also been fixed by these memories. This is when the line between coincidence and fate begins to blur. The disappointment in knowing that everything is connected by a “limitation” is short-lived. Instead, I find myself finding comfort and being satisfied within a certain level of confinement and boundaries.

Coincidences one may come across at an unexpected time and at an unexpected location can be either pleasant or disconcerting. The individual small pieces around me come together to create something whole, and this eventually becomes what one would refer to as a coincidence, a concept which encompasses both time and location. I have never paid close attention to the starting point of such phenomenon which we accept so passively. I wish to look into the beauty which comes to us by chance.
