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 local stores disappearing in Shinheung-dong, I began to document the public phenomenon of gentrification and ways of living that are being erased or becoming more anonymous.
