Kill Your Darlings

  • Inspired by ancient Korean collage called ‘Jogakbo’, I made a collage work with leftover paper scraps. It was interesting to create value out of non-value. At the same time, I was able to see what had been rejected from other graphic designers’ work. In constructing my works from the scraps, one can see what people had been doing before creating the actual thing, like what they read, saw, referenced. Those leftover papers which I collected mostly from the trash can, have been discarded as a part of the actual projects. However, they still live in the actual works as thoughts, knowledge, or memories.
