"Time, Water, and Movement" is a series of studies I've undertaken, focusing on merging different elements—time, water, and movement. Conceptually, I metaphorically attribute the fluidity of water to the passage and intangibility of time, creating a series of items akin to surreal, time-frozen objects. Given my choice of using everyday containers as vessels, this work also delves into the blurred boundaries between art and object for daily use.

In terms of material utilization, I drew inspiration from my residency at the Kahla Porcelain Factory in 2015, where I refined traditional porcelain casting techniques. I captured the tipping process of a water-filled vessel using blue liquid porcelain. Rather than forcing the material to achieve specific, challenging effects, I orchestrated precise arrangements to showcase its most natural state. For instance, the blue liquid porcelain naturally formed a horizon line when poured into plaster molds placed at different angles.
