Heaven, Earth and Human
The letters for Korean vowels were based on three elements: a dot for the Sun in the Heavens, a horizontal line representing the flat Earth and a vertical line for the upright Human, the neutral mediator between the Heaven and Earth.
From solid shapes to plane shapes
Koreans used to think the world was made up of these three elements—Heaven, Earth and Human. I experiment with this philosophical and geometric concept in order to see ordinary scenes differently and to make my photographs two-dimensional.
