One art work that really caught my attention was '87 by Eun-Kyung Suh. The first thing I noticed was that it was photo images that were printed on a cube that has been threaded together. I was amazed at how each pixels were printed on each individual thread on one side of the box. After that, I noticed that there were many boxes lined up horizontally with images on each of the box. It had the South Korean flag on one of the boxes to show the location and the time period looked like it took place after the Korean War. The whole art piece consisted of yellow boxes with printed photos lined up with images of an election or a political uprising or disturbance. It also shows the hardships of what the ordinary people had to go through. I want to ask the artist why did she choose to represent this time period? How it is important to this art work?
