시시한 정보, 그라픽 언어와 고정된 사물 사이. 모으고, 정리하고, 구분하여 문서화시키고, “방부 처리”하고, 카테고리를 나누고 인덱스를 만들어 보관하고, 몇몇 가상 시나리오를 통해 카탈로그를 만들고, 서로 연관이 없는 정보를 한 문맥 속에 집어넣는 것.
Juggle with tedious information, visual language and static objects.
The catalogue shows how the typewriter became redundant. It does so in reverse chronological order. Each page describes one step in the development and demise of the typewriter. It provides hand drawn illustrations of each specific model of typewriter and describes the reasons for its demise. The catalogue ends in April 2011 with the closing of the very last typewriter factory. The catalogue is typeset using a typewriter and features a specially designed typewriter generated display font.

Ministry of Anonymity
Originality is a myth. Aspiring to be an original person or an original artist/designer is a highly overrated obsession of the Western educational system and the cultural world it services. I exist on what I borrow from others. I am the person that the outside world chooses to see in me. My masks are many, my tactics are inconsequential. I am the unidentified servant in the Ministry of Anonymity.

THE MIXED-BREED UNIFIES THE TRANS-FORMED AND TRANS-MEANT, I Do Not Know What To Call It 1~4

Museum of Excuses
The "Museum of Excuses(2012)" is a sort of cemetery of excuses as an interface. The excuses are collected by “donor” from the public’s experiences. The collected excuses are immediately sealed and fossilized in a sugar jar with their sweet lies as being enshrined into urns. The sweet and fragile excuses are expired and it is time to commemorate for the worn-out excuses.
