Soul

 

 

I have been exploring the flux between the city as an organism, and nature trying to coexist with it.

 

Soul, is a project that deals with how nature tries to make a space for it self inside the city. Specifically, in the constant metropolitan expansion of Seoul, South Korea. This project also explores the duality on the South Korean society, extremely modern, but at the same time very traditional and with ancestral costumes, that at the same instance are rooted in the collective imaginary.

 

Analogue to this, the same duality is reflected in the relationship that exists between the metropolis and nature. In a city, that tries to find a place for the natural, in a completely artificial context. In the same way, it is a society that looks to the future from the traditional.

 

At the end, a question remains, is it nature fighting back, or are we getting to a place where we are fighting for her?
