Black comedy portrait of the contemporary society

Artist So-hyun Moon realizes image works based on stop motion animation techniques using puppets. The society is represented by the reinterpretation of puppets and some cynical and terrible imagination is added to this. The puppet’s attitude and daring determination confronting somewhat cruel situations sometimes seems foolish and ridiculous. This way, artist Moon’s puppets are considered our own portraits living in the contemporary society and show them to us in the third-person perspective inviting us to clearly see the situation in which we are in. Artist Moon is seeking a method to create unique rhythms of images by way of juxtaposing non-manipulated real successive movements with manipulated false segmental movement.
