for DRI Group Exhibition in Seoul, Summer 2013
The theme for the exhibition in 2013 was the "Youth". When I think of the youth, the young people in their twenties (including myself), they tend to be discouraged in many circumstances despite the limitless potentials they have. Therefore, I wanted to give people hopes, courage, and tell them they can do it. Inspired from the fortune cookies after dining at a Chinese restaurant, I've designed patterned little fortune paper with messages inside folded. After thinking of the best way to deliver these messages to people in a fun way, I chose to put it in half-opaque capsules. Almost everyone in Korea had experienced picking up these little capsules with small prize in it when they were young. This way, the patterns would show through the capsule, the messages are delivered and people will have fun thinking of their childhood memories at the same time.
