My practice always starts from differentiating 'soft' and 'hard'; 'art' and 'craft'. In this project, the 'dream' is the soft part and 'visualisation' is the hard one. Softness can be infinite, but hardness always has limits. This fact always interests me how these two co-operate each other - just like mind and body. It also resembles with the relationship between 'art' and 'craft'. Creative thoughts can be 'art', and 'craft' is about encountering the reality - time, skills, materials, and resistance.

Craft only exist in motion. It is a way of doing things, not a classification of objects, institutions, or people. My installation also exists in one's experience, in full presence.
