Oh, Angel...?

Artist Statement

              On my life journey, when I felt lost and insecure, I learned the term “Angel Numbers,” which refers to repeated numbers that have a different meaning depending on each number. By using consecutive 35mm slide film, I collect those numbers. I photographed numbers on several license plates. I see license plates as representations of each individual. Each individual is on their own life journey, and how we meet each other has a meaning. The cars shuttle around, and I collect numbers from the street. I’m seeking the repeated Angel numbers. These numbers give me the motivation to move on from my hardships. But people from different cultural backgrounds may have opposite interpretations. Numbers are symbols that are perceived in different ways across the world. I want to present how social customs influence us to see the surrounding environment differently through our culture.
