"I begin by considering the ancient Kanji character, and the meaning of its representation. Then, I create a related form that incorporates emotion, gesture, and something of the Kanji and its meaning. For example, with this image I thought about the function of string, how it can bind or connect one thing to another, and how the forms it connects might be two people, two stones, or two worlds." --- from a conversation with the editors.
