游移不定   yóu yí bù dìng 

 2017

游移不定 ( yóu yí bù dìng) is a chinese idiom lost in translation. It represents a mind state or a feeling which is wobbling between things and hesitating in choice.

Through my personal out look on relationships there are only two extreme states:

extreme intimacy and isolation.

My work explores the positive and negative vacillations in between.

Stage one, 2017

textile, thread, glass bead, leather, sterling silver

Stage two, 2017

polymer clay, elastic thread, thread, leather, sterling silver

Stage three, 2017

beechwood, magnet, shibuichi, leather, sterling silver

Stage four, 2017

polymer clay, thread, leather, sterling silver

You understand it would be a self-destruction loop, you comprehend that you are not a complete person, you are incapable to love and been loved.
But your innocence and your desire urge you to seek love desperately, again and again.
