"Home – Land"

Hair was cut on New Year and sewn into a pair of shoes, the journey began...
Embroidery of map of Hong Kong and United States was added 2 years later. My ritual of collecting and utilizing the remnants of daily life like used teabags, which I drink; and my own hair collected after showers, comes from a desire to meditate on the death and rebirth which happens in the everday life.
