Home is a place where we can stand
Home is not only a concrete house that is made by humans
Home is where mind settles
Home is a space of warmth
Home is a space where we can feel secure
Home is a destiny
My works looks at the importance of space, which is so essential for life. Life cannot exist without the earth- the place we live, our shelter- yet the earth can exist without life. Our lives begin, end and become a part of the earth. Likewise, for unborn babies, the womb is the shelter where life begins, a place of warmth, an individual space for individual growth. Shades of red pervade both the installation and painting. The painting focuses on images of the fetus, each in its own singular space, yet sharing a larger space. In the installation, transparent red balls hang in a circle, with an empty space inside the circle where we can go. The form is sensitive to human interaction: if anybody touches it, the form can change. Each balls contains the drawing of an unborn child, turning it into a womb- like space, while the larger form represents the space of the earth.
