나는 어린 시절부터 구비문학(口碑文学)을 좋아했다. 수많은 이야기들에 등장 하는 존재는 나에게 인간적 리얼리즘을 느끼게 해 주었다.
풍자, 해학, 대비 등등의 구두에 의한 유희적 표현은 말로전하는 비석처럼 단단한 역사적, 예술적 영감이 되어주었다.
나는 이러한 구비문학적 영감을 요괴라고 하는 대상으로 전환하여 공간적으로 표현 하고 있다.
그리고 앞으로 지금까지의 제작활동을 통해 발견한 몇 가지의 가능성을 집약하여 보여주고 싶다. 그것은 예컨대, 이야기-->입체-->영상 등의 물리적 변화와 확장 성, 공간 구성 시 다른 소재와 작품의 혼재를 통한 정적 공간의 스토리 성 향상에 대한 것이다.
나는 나의 작품을 통해 현시대를 함께 살아가는 여러분과의 사회적, 인간적 커뮤니케이션을 강화시켜주는 하나의 장치로서 공간, 개념 구성을 목표로 하고 있다
