Big Eye is a concept of work called "a painting in which photographs

of historic place are condensed and created for philosophical reasons."

 

 

 DMZ 155miles, JUSTICE, Ground Zero, Hiroshima & Nagasaki, and Jungsangan is the works asking for philosophical reasons for ‘humanness’ an insight into human ambivalence in historical places where events occurred due to irrational behavior of humans in the past

 

I have always wondered about "Humanness." "Live like a human being," "Live as a human being," "Not a human," and "Dirty Man" are words that are heard in our lives without difficulty. Thinking about the meaning of "Humanness" in these words, human beings are taking the time to reflect on themselves.

In this process, I wanted to find a place where historical events took place more objectively and take a look at "Humanness." He wanted to ask, 'What is it about being human?' by discovering various human nature in the context of reconstruction and evasive history written on the history of violence and destruction by human desire?

Ground Zero's work happened to be remembered as a tragic place of modern history at the center of the growth of today's world-famous city while reading "The Birth of Cities" by P.D. Smith in 2015. When I learned something rather shocking and interesting in my search for that meaning, I started asking for "Humanness" in earnest.

It is "ground zero." Ground Zero was initially the term referring to the coordinates of the "Manharton Project" of the U.S. atomic bombing operations in Hiroshima and Nagasaki in 1945. Over time, it was an ironic place called Ground Zero where the United States was attacked in 2001.

"Ground Zero" was the place where people asked a strong question about "what is Humanness?" based on the image of human nature where destruction and reconstruction were overlap. Thus, the 911 site in Manhattan, New York, which was named Ground Zero, and the origin of the atomic bomb attacks on Hiroshima, the Ottawa River and Nagasaki was the most symbolic of my thought for "Humanness."

"DMZ155 Miles," which shows the painful reality of a divided nation facing each other, and "JUSTICE," which describes the desire of citizens to live humanly in the “Jungsangan”of a painful historical struggle against corrupt politicians.

I will continue to ask and share questions about "Humanness" at places where historical events such as Gwangju's 5.18, Killingfield, Cambodia's Poland's Auschwich Beach camp. This is because it is a condition and a process in which everyone living as a human being grows up on their own.
