      Entanglement Hearts Series
      A series of 10,000 “Hearts” representing the invisible “Entanglement” of life and non-life―


      This is a series I have been drawing since I was a student. The “heart" as a symbol of life is reconstructed and depicted as a model of invisible “entanglement” that interweaves countless forms of life and non-life. Many distinct actors make up the “heart.” Animals, insects, plants, fungi, viruses, minerals and man-made objects― all are with us, surround us, support our lives, and are supported by us. The stories of “entanglement” with various actors, however, are not always happy. The drawings also tell unhappy stories of sometimes scrambling, sometimes killing each other, and sometimes usurping and stealing from one other. What keeps us alive? What relationships do we have with others? I always reconsider these questions as I draw.
