Mailed cardboard box paper, adhesive tapes, stickers, threads, mailed stamp, wrapping material
2010~ on going project
The cardboard box paper used to be the boxes for transportation. They were the carriers for the objects and covered the things have been happened in the past. A lot of unknown and unexpected things were recorded on the surface of the boxes. The bags in this work are carrying the mystery while they were mailed. I transformed the outside paper from the mailed shipping box into those various bags. The process of these boxes presents the artist’s self-portrait during the certain periods of my life. Every bag carries certain memories, time and stories.
