formless works samples the memos you see at stationery and book stores where people test out writing utensils, and creates works by extracting the writing leftover on those memos. By changing the wandering lines and symbols taken from the memos into acryl and neon tubes, it changes worthless and meaningless trash into valuable materials, and it is that transformation system that is the work. The project approach of formless works, whose sampling is taken from various places and regions, is to expose passing, everyday fragments that everyone has likely experienced (yet, no one can remember what they wrote). You could say that it is a social cropping method that differs from the documentary-type method of narrowing the focus to a specific matter or problem, and then investigating society from a different point of view. Rather than a special event, by gathering the experience fragments that are forgotten from daily life as if they flow together with time, and reconstructing them into a work, I believe it is possible to more accurately trace realistic societies.
