I design geometric and abstract patterns inspired by the lines of the Korean alphabet. Because of its geometric, modern patterns, it has strong potential as a design instrument. I express my complicated feelings and thoughts in its pattern. I also use geometric patterns of traditional Korean patchwork quilts as metaphors for my Korean letter patterns– a modern reinterpretation of the patchwork quilt. Each scrap represents my complicated mentality, and I describe my eagerness for simple and calm by adding new, simple, black patterns to those detailed scraps. Using detachable tape, I imply potential and hope I can surmount anything if I put my heart into it.
