It is a work that records the repetitive labor practices of ordinary living people that accept their present fate. I hope we will overcome our current lives that is full of agony and suffering. I wanted to express my reverence and awe for the skillful labor practices carried out at the hands of mankind.

현재의 운명을 처연히 받아들이며 살아가는 보통 사람들의 반복적인 노동행위를 기록한 작업이다. 고뇌와 번뇌로 가득한 현세를 처연히 극복해 나가기를 바라며, 생존을 위한 인간의 일차적인 노동 행위에 대한 경외감을 표하고자 한 작업이다.
