South Korea, Seoul, Kookmin University, 2019
Through this project I want to portray vitality and a new way of looking at living things through the medium of jewellery. To do is, I use embroidery. You can feel the directionality and rhythm in each stitch, forming points, lines and planes, and the texture conveys fine movement which represents liveliness. Embroidery is highly decorative and stimulates our visual senses, allowing me to express the flow and cycle of life and the growth of living things. Through freehand drawing, I have focused on reproduction, proliferation, transformation, movement and growth. I used Hanji, Korean paper, as my main material, piling it up to create a substantial form and embroidering on top of it. The organic and ambiguous form of the Hanji reminds me of living creatures and stimulates my imagination.
