The premise of this illegal street project was to extend my investigation of traditional folklore and religion in the United States to the city of Seoul. Utilizing Korea’s rich history and extensive mythology, a piece exploring the various conflicts that have defined this contentious nation was installed in each quadrant of the city. The application of each piece is structured according to the principles of Ohaeng, the five directions of the universe, thus the implementation is therein physically defined by the direction of Korean Mysticism. To see the whole project check out this set on flickr.
