Silver Sweet Girl 2007 “Silver Sweet Girl” is the last of my light series and the first of my instillations that deals with my Korean identity. The burial mound that the empty white Korean dress sits on distorts and focuses the movie "Chunhyang" (2000 film). The same image is also re-contextualized through the side emitting fiber optic -- woven into a landscape that empty child can only see from afar. After scenes of love and passion the hanbok goes through a series of color changes. Bright colors of children to deeper colors of adulthood culminate to the white burial colors and the movie starts again.
