Purpose of the residency

The stay purpose is create artworks from research of Japanese building still remain in Korea. In this program, I focus Japanese houses that have the most basic form. Those Japanese houses exist in different places at different times, always under influence of different implications: Japanese houses from the Japan colonial period in Korea, Japanese houses built for American bombardment experiments in Utah, and Japanese houses that remain in Japan. The project attempts to examine various aspects of values that architecture represent. I want to consider the distortion that occurred in process of the modernization with Korean people.
