My use of paper is primarily influenced by the memory of a pet Tarantula’s molting (or shedding). After each molting, the spider would leave behind its old skin, completely intact – as if two creatures now occupied the space. I saw this delicate new shell as a hollow twin, representing both life and death.

Inspired by the idea of molting, I create sculptures/dioramas/installations using mostly paper, which (in both strength and vulnerability) evokes a presence, frozen remnant or a vessel, containing/conveying a story.

Current project: A series of paper skull dioramas, “The Vanitas”.
