Performance, Life of Trees

Life of Trees, 2021, All recycled materials, acrylic, hand and machine sewing, 30:00 Performance.  
This is a walking based costumed performance that I created and led on October 22nd in 2021. The performance subject matter is about humanity, compassionate care and environmental concern. I used recycled materials to create the funny looking costumes in three different races of performers. 
We made some sound of bells and hit the garbage can as a drum, while we gave plant seeds to people on the Gansevoort street in Meatpacking district, NYC. 
This work was made possible by the City Artist Corps Grants in 2021.

 Performance, Sunshower


Performance, Sunshower is a 20mints duration of theatrical performance that is based on my childhood experience and relationship with nature spirits.

I created 10 wearable costumes and the installation including hand-sewn tapestries and stop-motion video on the walls.

All costumes were inspired by my emotional behaviors, and sculpted abstractly.

Inside the cage


This is an experimental collaboration with Kenichi Nakajima.

We often feel a cage around us in our daily life. We were craving to break the cage and aspired to change our inside. In this work, we painted and sculpted to show our desire on canvas on the wall, in 200 x 200 sq. feet studio for 10 hours in Bushwick, Brooklyn, 2015.
