Conversation Between Cultures: Children is a project to design portable fabrics/wallpapers that can be placed in primary educational intuitions disclosed to all class and race. The goal is to design a space that engages fun and uplifting conversation in sharing differences in cultures and finding similarities within. 

 

Drawings are executed in different methods of digitally printing, silkscreen printing, and painting on different materials and hence colors are translated in their quality of dye inks, screen pigment, acrylic paints.

Screen printing on polyester taffeta and experimenting different ratios of base to pigment to achieve correct colors in different amounts of  transparency

 

An illusion of space is created through the relationships of colors, exploring co-existence of 2D and 3D. 

The drawings are derived from simplifying and abstracting architectures in Persian Miniatures and traditional Korean Palace. 

Being Korean but residing in Middle East and America, I grew interacting with people of completely different language, beliefs, and nationalities.

Not one person is the same, not one is completely different. Ignorance is the result of disregarding differences and hatred is caused by self-centeredness. The next generation should learn to not own these qualities and there should be more spaces to encourage understanding at an early age.
