How do you see Hangeul?
2014. Hangeul Day Project: How do you see Hangeul? (with 민겨)
This work was intended to celebrate the Hangeul Day(한글 날, 09. Oct.). We met poeple on the street and asked what they think about Korean character, Hangeul. Then, let them express their feelings and thoughts on the transparent panel. The photographs were taken in Seoul, S.Korea.
The concept of the work was from Graphic Designer, Kwon Jun-ho(일상의 실천, 권준호 디자이너).
