Invisible Sculptures is a series of sculptures that are invisible to eye and can only be “seen” by engaging through senses other than vision.

During the pandemic, it became challenging to show work in indoor spaces. Online was not an alternative space for this work because of the highly experiential nature. I decided to bring my work to public spaces by myself. I put together a cart that can carry the sculpture. I brought this cart out to streets and my neighborhood park, Tompkins Square Park in East Village. I invited the park visitors to engage with the sculpture and met a lot of people that I wouldn’t have met if my work was in traditional gallery or museum spaces.

Not everyone can afford to visit galleries or museums, and many don’t even feel comfortable with such spaces, especially during this time of pandemic. I believe that art needs to be accessible to everyone and wanted to reach out to a more diverse group of audience through this experiment.
