The purpose of the MFA thesis is to involve creating the 'Human sensibility- Alienation' as the sculptural pieces. I choose the human sensibility as the vehicle of my work because I believe it is where basic determination about motives, values and responsibility are formed. The body of work explored in this thesis is about physical, emotional and psychological issues in the context of the human characters and my viewpoint of art. It reflect on aspects of myself such as the struggle between independence and connection, love of nature and alienation from our environment, social constraint and personal growth. In this thesis, my aim is to illustrate images and ideas which resonate in the imagination, and examine time for introspection. I hope to show that in order to achieves self-worth and inner strength, man must appreciate and accept all condition of being.
