Dream of A Little Pond

  • Photographer
    Won-Chae Jo

I found the sea in a small pond I happened to pass by. The sea expressed the frustration of being trapped in a pond with a calm and passionate appearance. It was like representing the frustration of people around the world trapped in COVID-19. The stagnant water in a small pond that may have been in the sea some time ago was expressing the longing for roaring in the sea. This work is an abstract work of time. The traces found in the natural corrosion and cracks of the old pond are expressed as waves of the sea. The waves show a déjà vu like human desire to go to a wider world.
