My work is a meaningful story reflecting these four stages in life. My messages form a meaningful story as if it is seen as "fairly tales for grown-ups," which give this dreary modern society with warmer atmosphere.

The story's theme is our lives. I use the nature to describe metaphorically many important things that have been forgotten by lives of modern society. For me the nature is not an object to enjoy and utilize,but an object to learn and respect. Learning from the nature's rationality, order and harmony, I find and learn principles of living, balance within society, and truth of universe. Thus, I would like to deliver these findings to people by visualizing them and represent them as my theme of rites of passages
