Relocating from the relatively homogeneous South Korea to the rather heterogeneous United States inspired me to explore the process of perception and its relationship with space. How viewers perceive space is related to their past experiences: positive, neutral, and negative. Space is neutral, yet perceptions are experience-bound and they color art spaces in familiar and unfamiliar ways. I create multiple layers in which a wide range of elements establish figure-ground relationships. I am not looking for spaces to address ideology, but to offer a playground where viewers can give rein to their own imagination.
