The work “When connecting the dark spots on a hands, it forms a bright constellation”, stems from a personal experience, in which I found great consolation in the company of my girlfriend.

When I was sent to the hospital with suspected heart issues, my girlfriend was sitting beside me in the emergency room. It was at that time when I realize there are dark spots on both of our hands, and subsequently thought of connecting them to form a constellation. This idea resulted in an annotated photograph and a set of neon light which corresponds to the shape of the constellation formed by the lines drawn across our hands.
