My Korea Study

In the October of 2012, I decided to study Korea: my curiosity, the long lost memories, the Korean sentiment, how I am Korean, and how I am not Korean. I started a journal where I wrote exclusively in Korean. New connections were made, and what I thought was going to happen did not happen. This is what happened in the first months. This series is called “judgmental broadsides.” They are a visual study of Korean words that have multiple meanings such as “빔: new clothes/empty,” “우리: us/animal pen,” or “내/네/네: my/your/yes.”
