Glass Box is a curatorial artist project dedicated to creating spaces to initiate and generate dialogues centered on the idea of community and commonalty within a culturally diverse society.

Inspired by the story "Hateship, Friendship, Courtship, Loveship, Marriage"  by Canadian writer Alice Munro, Room of Her Own investigates the possibility of creating a narrative through the arrangement of fragmented everyday objects.

Embracing the impossibility of illustrating the island of Utopia described by Thomas More in his 1516 book Utopia, "No Place, Good Place" is a project that seeks the shape of Utopia within the existing spaces that linger on the threshold of place/non-place.

This project investigates the urge, necessity, and seduction of revolution that mobilizes the masses. The research essay part of this project is in process.

Packet is a project that tries to unpack the complexity of crossing borders and as the consequence conflating spaces and time.

Extensive research project on the existential understanding of anxiety from the early 20th century to the present time, this work draws heavily from the work of Martin Heidegger, Walter Benjamin, Hannah Arendt, and Theodor Adorno and their definition and understanding of anxiety, dream, revolution and peace.  

Often gifted to artists or used in Glass Box Projects' gatherings, these hand-crafted objects try to intertwine the "why" and the "how" of contemporary art practices. This parallel interest helps me with understanding of materials in their raw forms and appreciate and develop technical skills by taking the risk of working with tools.
