I was inspired by the mysterious forms of organs and cells. The unsettling shapes are rational. It invokes that there might be another world inside the body.

Organs are incessantly in motion, and cells are splitting. They might be making sounds too. Certainly they are inside, however, we are not aware of them. They become alive only when we are conscious of them.

I aim to express the mysteriousness of their complicated and chimeric existence.
