I’m Ahsun Hwang. I’m originally from Seoul and moved to Glasgow to study at Glasgow School of Art. My idea: We live in a world of intense competition; everyday “challenge”
It’s not beautiful anymore.
In particular, I think there is a certain life frame in Korea.
Time to study, time for college, People go to the army, Job preparation time
, Time to get a job, marry and give birth…
But when I came here, I thought it’s great and beautiful to see people who continue the challenge.
I wanted to express how pleasant and happy we were to challenge something.
At first, I studied the word challenge in the image of jumping from the water’s edge.
And something, or someone floating on the water,
The images we have left in the water, the waves, have also expanded my research.
This looked like life, like a normal day.
I hope through my work, people will be able to comfort and spend their busy time to pursue something in everyday life.
