The name of this project, Wozu, is a German word meaning ‘what for’. His statement was “Life is a war in which we struggle“, trying to explore human in extreme circumstances. He continues “In an endless circle of life and death—born in and cross the water to breathe his last breath—humans have been searching for the reasons for the existence and resisted the world and self-made limitations“. A very expressive way one can show life, war, community.
