Movement and interactive relationship with the body has been the most important element throughout my body of work. However through these works, I also started to explore the mechanical structure as a form. Mechanical structure becomes the most enjoyable form to me as it becomes complex yet remains simple and coherent. The contrast between metal structural form and natural feather, together with the repetitive and whimsical movements of fragile wings, provokes the imagination and evolves the intimate relationship between work and viewer/wearer. Although the recent series, segmented wings have been focused on the formal challenge to engineer an intricate movement that simulates bird wings, these works are intended to be a series of poems in which I develope my own formal language, interpret the nature of wings, create various structural forms with movements, and share the metaphor, imagination, humor, with viewer/wearer.
The quality of KyoAni’s animation is always flabbergasting to me, so I always stare at gifs for a really long time to decipher the frames (rather than looking at the breakup of frames on Photshop LOL).

At last! Here’s a project that my roomie and I have been working on since the beginning of this year. It’s a fictional catering company for school K-12, with emphasis on healthy choices through education and fun. It includes a full identity system, packaging line, promotional material, infographic, website, and a little game app for kids and parents to track their meals.
