Her face turned red as she spoke. She said that Changwon is a nice place to live and that things will get better. Spring has arrived earlier than expected. The warm spring breeze blow through her light brown hair. I collected the sound of the adjective ‘nice’ and decided to paint the impression i got from her as a light brown with a slight hit of orange.
The words, which I engraved on a transparent acrylic panel with acrylic paint, represent the experiences, memories and wishes of the people I have interviewed in Changwon. Through the fluttering and colorful words, people can hear the segmented words from the interviews alongside the sounds of the waves and wind, which I recorded off the coast of Changwon.
The color of the front of the paper, which is hung from the middle of the wall, resembles azaleas that can be found on the top of Mt. Muhak. The back of the paper is the color of the spring sea sparkling in the sunlight. This paper is 10 meters long and is endlessly pierced like the waves of the Jinhea Bay, whereas the end of the paper is shredded in an irregular pattern like an indented coastline and the torn pieces lie on the floor like islands.
The spring breeze is blowing in the futuristic city of the past, Changwon.
