When The Sun Is No Longer Bright
The screenprints in When the Sun is No Longer Bright are
based on photos taken in the Shinheung-dong community that portray the changing, shrinking, and disappearing of this town but also the loss of many small towns that are across Korea. The prints in this work manifest the shifting culture and changing landscape of communities as people move out to different neighborhoods. After observing the changing landscapes in the town, I began to document the neighborhood, exposing how the community and the neighborhood were reshaped by economic hardship and the city's new development plan over two years.
In an attempt to capture these fleeting moments of transition, I tumbled out into the street where the liveliness of the neighborhood was losing its vitality, only leaving its stories behind.
The prints were reproduced as a catalog in a small edition of 50 with the same title When the Sun is No Longer Bright.
