crafts from daily rituals

It has been a lifetime question for Chan Young what we live for. Most people live repetitive lives for livings, pretty much following the daily routines. The diligent working life is generally appreciated in modern society, however, it sometimes makes people feel empty that there is no more.

When it is not clear why doing certain things, it might be a good idea to do them repeatedly until they speak out by themselves. Chan Young’s way of finding the answer for the question is to observe and illustrate ordinary objects in his daily life. All works in this series are so mundane that they hardly get noticed in reality. Chan Young hopes to find any hint about the meanings of our existence through these unsung objects.
