“What Love Is was a poem I wrote in June 2009. To me, love comes in various forms. It could be a secret, a beam of light, a burning kiss, or starry night. It’s a question with no wrong answer. I wanted to visualize this poem. But there is no way to find out a subject in reality which fully represent love. So I decided to create a series of images which appeared in my mind when writing this poem. It took me 2 months to finish this series. I made all the props by hand. The process itself was a reward to me. It was like decoding or unboxing. And when the series were finished, I was very certain that every viewer could find the answer to the question-What is love?“ Maleonnwood work, 55 l x 59 h x 35 w (cm), ca. 5 kg
