JAMSIL.ZIP (Seoul Jamsil Study)
“A pit pops up in my book Zip and begins its own journey through the pages.
The title Jamsel.zip is a combination of two words. Jamsil is a name of a city in Seoul, South Korea, where I grew up, and Zip refers to a type of archive file format that is used to compress data. I used visual images from various online sources and composed these "found images” into multiple, strip-like sequences, formatting a narrative. In this manner, the book serves as an archive that compresses the story of life in Seoul as well as being a critique of urban development.
The archive has been designed with three different goals in mind: to tell the artist’s personal story–both the memories and the anticipation of wandering the city.“ - The artist
