Children are our future! Children represent the potential of our future and connect it to our past through the present time.
The Korean alphabet, Hangeul, produces one word by combining consonants and vowels into syllables to create one sound. It is a character that seeks balance and harmony through connection.
The artwork <mixed by wind, connected to land> was created by forming sentences which tell a story by referring to children’s popular songs, including both traditional children’s songs and current ones, and then by presenting sentences based on the songs in the form of ceramic tiles. Past, present, and future are connected through children and Hangeul to show that Gyeonggi Province and the world are interconnected.
