The work method started with welding and ended with welding. The simple meaning of welding is to combine the copy of a metallic property by melting it with another. What I focused on was not in using it exactly as it says in the manual. I wanted to resolve everything as ways of having fun. That is why no such processes such as casting or founding, which are standardized methods in metal body sculpture, are used. Also, there is no division of labor, which is a symbol of social community. I work only by myself, only dependent on my welding torch. I considered the torch as my other hand and tried to surpass the limitations of the manual. I ignored the output level and the proper method of use, only wanting to play with it. Thus, this other hand became various tools that could melt, pare, adhere, and scrape off and color-coat. This was because it was the only way that I could think of to "live" and not "exist." Ultimately, within the culture and system, we try to find a sense of self-regard while living in the glittering world that someone other than myself has provided, but this was the only way to leave a trace of my life. Although my existing being may disappear, it's the only way of "living" instead of "existing" as myself. I came to express this current work in order to find my own entity.
