My work is to turn leather into shoes to express life. I had a lot of opportunities to think about life and living because of an emergency of covit19. Therefore, the theme is “LIFE” this time. I’ve made up a work that can feel the difference between inorganic and organic substances, and also can feel leather is alive.
