I think that everything in this world, not only humankind, but also the daily necessities around us, has a history and a spirit. For example, the damages and stains of things express the history of objects. And, if the person has precious memories about these things, the spirit of the owner links to them, directly. I have been interested in old things, because I can feel their history. When I see objects, especially daily necessities, I always imagine the stories they can tell. And I think about the people that have used them. How were these objects used? What memories do they contain? My imagination links strongly to my work as an important means to connect with these objects.
