WE ARE JUST A ISOLATED LIGHTHOUSE_2014_globe ball, B.B guns, tape, wood, Light bulb_80 x 80 x 380 cm

Since 2012 I have attempted to use found objects to trace stories around the kinds of things I experienced since reaching adulthood. In particular, a large portion of my work has focused on experiences that I had working part-time in a factory. While working there I saw people struggling because of the hard physical labor that they had to endure, all for the sake of their hopes and dreams. I worked hard alongside with them in the same space. Due to the recent global financial crisis, a lot of countries, including Korea, have undergone very difficult situations. However I would like to give a sense of hope to the hard working people. In order to represent a sense of hope I looked for objects that are commonly found in factories or working studios, such as light-bulbs, wastepaper baskets, mirrors and pieces of woods. In addition, I added my own statements and sometimes created a video to accompany the installation.
