I have been working on collage work by using photography and three-dimensional mixed media. As approaching with the use of fairytales to tell personal stories, I try to silhouette remembrance and oblivescence of own childhood. As exposing and hiding the emotional component, I try to seek depth of memories by multiple layers of shadows of mementos within a diorama. The stories are comprised of private snap shots, craft paper cutout images, and appropriate images from the Internet as symbols to create stories besides photographs that I take for collage components.
