_They also want to be stable   

   installation / copper plate, copper leaves, salt, fabric / 2022 
   Commissioned for Salt Museum

   The salt wrapped in the fabric will absorbs moisture from the air, causing the unstable
   copper plates to catch the droplets. The copper plates will gradually rust with the help of the
   salt throughout the exhibition period.

   This work questions our own creativity without regard to the natural order of things. Many
   metals are always trying to rust because they are more stable as substances in their rusted
   state in nature. However, we humans often try to keep metals from rusting for our own
