- Making Songdo
Junebum Park has shown works that demonstrate the procedure of transforming places or objects using his own hands; in more recent works, his intervention as an artist emerges in different, more expanded forms. In his work, Park makes use of miniatures or attaches two-dimensional pictures here and there; he constantly tries to develop and apply a complex way of thinking that does not depend upon the characteristics of the media employed.
Making Songdo for 3-channel video demonstrates a procedure for transforming land and city using information from Google Earth, Naver map and Incheon Free Economic Zone (<ifez.go.kr>) This work, intended for the development of the city, encompasses superficial aspects as well as internal structures, policies and conflicts and involves the people who live there. His work is the result of a novel idea to combine miniature images derived from the real world as a means to understand the self and the surrounding world.
