"Forest of Stools"

“Forest of stools (stool series)”is a body of work representing continual thoughts. These connected and stacked stools are indicating continual thinking process, which when you sit down on one chair to consider one idea, another idea pops up and you move on to the next one. A stool indicates temporary time, which you can spend limited time on a stool because of its discomfort. Each stool is created individually from different glass stringers with the alcohol torch. Stacked glass line drawings of stools show the obsession of doing a repetitive action and collecting each impression of the drawing. From this series, I created a forest of stools, and I would like to invite the viewers to join this forest and share and empathize their stories.
