Ritual: Elevator To 37
I added a ritual to my life and continued doing for two months to see what I could get out of it. I lived on the 37th floor of my apartment, and I spent 5 minutes waiting for the elevator every day. I try to create, review and discover from everyday life.

What is more important in this project is the process. I reintegrated the data displayed on the screen of each elevator after sorting out the photos I took. These data are then continuously transformed into images, audio, video. The transformations always bring me to question and rethink the relationship between form and content.
