망각속에 기록하기: In this project, I want to suggest a question how the past experiences and forgotten memories become the strong force that connects individuals in different times and spaces subconsciously.
Shed hair: It is no longer physically part of me, but it still contains information (Genetic, protein, etc.) that are specifically myself. The only difference is in the loss of physical connection. This piece questions how this common thinking reflects how people relate/connect to each other. As a person who always feels living in between two cultures feeling forever outsider in either place, this thought also reflects how immigrants are often separated from their families, so that emotional connection is weakened or even lost over time and the people become more isolated from their homeland that way.
