Untitled (Ring), 2018, is derived from another past work. It consists of two prominent elements contained in water filled glass sphere. First, the ring, cast in recycled gold, collected from damaged electronic devices during Thailand’s great flood in late 2011, fit to his wife’s ring finger. It intended to be a reminder of when the couple consoling one another amid the flooding disaster.
The piece was then exhibited in Utopia starts small, the 12th Fellbach Small Sculpture Triennial, 2013. The other, CM type Meteorite, Carbonaceous Chondrite containing amino acids and water in form of hydrated minerals. It evidences that primitive meteorites brought a large proportion of water to the primordial Earth. In other words, the debris from outer space transporting water to the Earth suspended over the souvenir made of substance extracted from the wreckage caused by flood. Through this ensemble, the work brings two distant realities closer.
