I have cut out pages in the shape of a bowl to create absence and presence. The repetitive working process presented in the accumulated pages represents the timeless space in between the absence and presence as well as visualized-invisible concept of the relation of the presence and absence. I say, in this sculptural book, that the presence only exists when the absence is recognized.
