I'm keen on environmental issues. The photographs below refer to seed-diversity.
Now, we are living in the era of the disappearance of seed-diversity where 63% of plant species and 94% of vegetable species disappeared globally. The same phenomenon has occurred also in Korea. After recognition of the seriousness of this environmental problem, I’m on the project exploring diverse beauty of indigenous seeds visually.
As a visual artist, the way I research and report native seeds is totally different from the way environmentalist does, which would preferably be the chance to spread this issue to the people so indifferent to keywords such as ‘Eco-friendly’and‘farming’ that had few chances to know this issue.
The seeds in the photography are all native bean-species in Korea, showing ‘multifariousness’ Mother Nature has by nature, which has been disappearing and must be preserved.

sometimes, I imagine normal things acting totally different way from a stereotype. This image is one of that kind of my imagination. Even though people think that butterfly only flies, they love to walk with wings whenever people don't see them.

Blue silkscreen
These are flat cards made with silk screen to express beautiful blue which is not expressed by offset printing. Also known as Yves Klein's Blue, it is blue with a color that is close to the color between Ultra Marine and Royal Blue.
