"Disassembly and reassembly are core to my process, which concerns the erasure and insertion of hidden images of the human body. It's a way of hiding my identity as a queer person and communicating with others as a member of a society that requires strict morality. Through this study, I approach the 'maintenance of social stability' from various angles."
