My installation works since 2005 have been influenced tremendously by my experiences of spending time and building a studio home in Ghana, West Africa. What began as a naive adventure fantasy of an affordable vacation home in a tropical landscape turned into a study of my own fear, guilt and prejudice as well as a lesson in the relationship between the developed and underdeveloped parts of this world. I began to shift the focus of my artworks from investigation of perception and personal identity to that of the effects of global economic connections. Since 2007, I have been creating photo, video, and sculptural installations that investigate the global connection by looking at the rituals, myths, and the physical evidence of the inter-connection between the developed and underdeveloped nations and the effects of globalization.

In my art in public places, I create artworks that are informed by the site's history and current context. Starting from these information, I like to create artworks that transform the site into a meaningful and thought-provoking place. I see my artwork for public spaces as an opportunity to dialogue with a bigger audience and create an imaginative and inspiring environment.

I studied medicine at Kyungbook National University before immigrating to the US. I studied painting at San Francisco Art Institute, and received MFA in Sculpture and Installation from Unviersity of California at Berkeley in 1995. I moved to Los Angeles in 1996 and currently live and work in LA and Ghana.
