Industrial Weaving (Jacquard)
Wool, Cotton, Viscose
In Seoul, South Korea, innumerable tall buildings are covering the sky of the city. In the middle of the busy and fast-paced modern city, historic palaces with rich traditions can be found. When one looks into the historical traditions such as extravagant celebrations for the kings and queens of Chosun dynasty from several hundred years ago that are hidden but are surely coexisting with modern city and culture, it is hard not to be amazed. The double layered jacquard reflects the transition and coexistence of the past and present in Seoul. Moreover, it is also mirroring the coexistence of my own dual identity.
