JI HAE KIM - Samsung Art and Design Institute - South Korea

Back to Golden age - An elastic force occurs when something is being stretched or compressed. We live in a society with a highly developed technologic civilization. We aspire for it in a heartless world. But in reality, the hidden truth is rampant. Clothes with zippers and buttons hide our mind while we struggle to find the hidden truth - When we unbutton or unzip - the external pressure, we can see the nature of the object and we aspire to go back to the most primitive form.
Resilience is to return to its original form - The Renaissance (Rebirth) period was the most beautiful and splendid.
