Concept of the artwork

The concept of this work is the sound of water and the space. In a certain place (space), one expresses the scenery they see and the feelings they have in their language (letters) and drops it in the water. What I feel important is to move water by the dropped language and to create a new sound in the water (a sound which can be visually recognized). Through such phenomenon, I create movements of water which match the space, and express them in one form.

In this work, I thought of the attractive landscape and people's energy in Ube as well as the original concept, so I titled the work 'remember-ube'.

The shape of water in stainless steel has a feeling of forever flowing water and a form of a hard metal dripping like a drop, giving the work some softness.
