Currently, I work with receipts as my primary medium. Receipts, collected daily, can be transformed from their function as trademarks and everyday detritus to something that captures and stops a specific moment. Texts and images and any other remaining part become formative elements of composing my work. These works become an abstract version of a still life or landscape through which the viewers can see a particular moment in their own lives. In my work, what I saw is not exactly what you see. But what you see is exactly what I made.
