In front of others, men often play the script of socially expected gender roles, are they doing this willingly, or forcibly? What is their inner world like underneath the successful roles? Furthermore, when the scripts change depending on the occasion, how do men perform them? By what standards are men's performances evaluated by others?

In this series, corn is a symbol of man. I create a lot of corn by manipulating the interior and exterior of it. The corn is not what people expect, but It looks so natural that it makes people think that's how it grows. It's like men. Men often so naturally play a variety of socially expected roles, even sometimes making themselves and others ignore their internal states. However, there are some men who unfortunately fail and are detected. These clues can be found in corn. Watch them carefully!
