" Voyagers " is a collection of visual maps reflecting the unforgettable experiences of traveling.
Embodying that disconcerting feeling of disbelief mixed with excitement, the rapid absorption of new stimuli is reflected from the glass fragments on each surface. Coincidentally, a land where people with different values exist gently guides you to become more receptive to new ideas. For me, traveling is a meditational act of learning and embracing yourself in different circumstances.
The elements constructing this body of work were not only from physical muscle memories but also from the transition of perspective and ideas. The captured colors are the hues collected intentionally and unintentionally as a subtle fluctuation of emotions that were subsequently preserved under the glass to be viewed as a filtered memory. Blank spaces of grout are essential to represent the muted moments of everyday life, and to emphasize the experience upon reaching one’s destination. Finally, the scattered pieces of frosted glass reflect the movement of the body, the speed of time, and the overall flow of the journey.
Each piece in this solo exhibition will be a representation of this introspective experience and an answer to the question, “How was your trip?”
