SUMMARY :

“The heart is constituted into a gift-object - whether ignored or rejected.” - A Lover’s Discourse - Fragments, Roland Barthes

I use porcelain, a tactile and strong, yet delicate and fragile material, along with a pulse of light, to manifest and to record the height, distance and beat of my own heart and the hearts of the people I love. Through depicting the rate and the physical distances of hearts, I take it as a metaphor to manifest emotional distances. No matter how hard it is, to be honest with each other in relationships, closeness, distance and the pulse between hearts portray emotions.
