Balloons are symbols of freedom.
However these bodies are tied up and restrained
by these free-moving balloons.
One might try to rescue these bodies by shooting arrows.
But if successful, the bodies will fall from sky.
The relationship of the body in unstable and paradoxical situations
are represented through narrative drawings.
These drawings are also expanded into animation films, book and installations.
