Artist, Seoul, 1982

These works expressed root plants, one of natural products in the dynamic and organic form and used crochet technique with a metal wire. Root plants mean the plant growing by storing nutrients in roots and the root is an organ sucking up moisture and nutrients from the soil. Free forms of root plants continuously growing and reacting in the ground are formatively attractive.

Because of the mesh structure, the inner shape of ornaments made by the crochet technique can be seen freely and shadows coming by transmitted light a variety of interesting images. Crochet technique knitted with a metal wire has an organized pattern by hands not by a machine. Crochet forms change variously with generation of fineness and looseness depending on the number of winding on the needle. While knitting, the form can be freely changed and three-dimensional form as well as planar structure can be made.
