I consider the walls of my room to be the boundary separating private and public. After tracing the walls of my room from the private side in silicon rubber, I reconstructed them in a public space where the general public can see them. Like an empty shell, the thin, silicon film that was pulled from the inner side allows people to imagine the person that lives within that private boundary. By looking at a room of someone’s inverted private space from the outside, viewers from the general public will think about the private space that they have. At this time, you could say that the work becomes a mirror that reflects the experience (interior) of the viewer.
