Wozu -Floating lumps These works show the states of inner collision among the scared egos which want to look away the truth but still say various voices in silent ‘Wozu’ which is interpreted as “What for” by german language means continuous ontological contemplation for human being who is under agony, weak and imperfect. Human beings are started from confusion. And they are destined not to stop ontological question until they reach death. Maybe, those continuous questions might be meaning of our existence in daily life. Therefore, we are still imperfect and living together floating in a world of confusion. This series originated in the bizarre and mystic image of myself reflected in the water. These sentences written right after sudden awaken from sleep, opened the starting point of my work. I reflected myself in water and there was a stranger. I wish he disappeared tomorrow.
