Amber Lightings with a single module from The Modern PS

‘Amber’—a series of transparent, glowing objects inspired by amber fossils—is a time capturing art that further evolve into functional sculptures.

The motif has emerged from the practice of assimilating my making process with natural formation process of amber fossils that both naturally occur, trap moments, and preserve past memories transcending time and space.

Likewise, ‘Amber’ objects with natural and organic form has been created through mirroring natural production, for instance, it employs epoxy resin in an alternative use of natural resin to conjure properties of amber which can trap and crystalize temporary moments.

" Furniture is memorial in conversation with one's history "

 

Strata Stool Series is a collection of stools using reclaimed materials.

Inspired by geologic formations, the Strata Stools are made out of flexible polyurethane foam, with layers of various materials collected from surroundings, such as used clothes from my wardrobe, studio disposals, and kitchen materials.

It has a diagonally concave top illustrating contour lines that also supports the human body softly. Each stool has a soft and squishy top, as well as an individual bottom with unique ingredients in stratum. The stool itself is a tactile record of one’s memory, history, and identity.
