 Chinese Everywherism
Wondering why Chinese people and Chinese products are everywhere I found the notion of Guanxi, that can be easily translated as relationship or connection. Though there is also a lot more (confusion) about it as being an 'untranslatable' word, an important feature to understand Chinese society and the opposite of how relationships in the western world functions.
“So is it guanxi that makes that China is everywhere? Without trying to find an answer, I decided to make my own connected systems, attempting to create my own myth about guanxi.”
(created in 2015 during a residency at Da Wang, Shenzhen, China)

Korean success (성공)
A set of constructions and line drawings based upon the factors for success in Korea. It started with a visualization of the six Korean characters that form the word success: 성공 .
