작품설명
작가는 하늘의 신에게 닿기 위하여 지어졌던 바벨탑을 인간이 가진 단결력과 믿음의 힘으로 해석한다. 불교가 국교인 태국에서도 부처를 모시기 위해 고층의 파고다(pagoda)를 지었는데, 단결력과 믿음의 힘이라는 면에서 바벨탑과 공통점을 찾을 수 있다. <희망과 믿음의 탑>은 기원과 믿음의 두 키워드를 반영한 작품이다. 작가는 이 작품을 보는 사람들에게 행복과 행운의 기운이 퍼지기를 소망한다. 대나무로 만들어진 탑 꼭대기에는 대나무 종(bell)이 매달려 있는데, 이는 하늘과 가까운 곳을 통해 천국의 소리를 듣는다는 의미가 있다.

About
The artist reinterprets the Tower of Babel, a symbolic structure to reach the god of heaven, as the strength of human unity and faith. In Thailand, where Buddhism is the state religion, pagodas were built as a place to pray to Buddha, which shares the common elements of unity and power of faith with the Tower of Babel. Tower of Hope and Faith reflects two keywords of birth and prayer. Salee hopes that the energy of happiness and luck will spread to the audience. A bamboo bell hung atop a bamboo tower, as a symbol to listen to the sound of heaven in the closest place to the sky.
