The 'Anthropocene' is a term that denotes an era in which many geologically significant conditions and processes are profoundly altered by human activity. WAVES is dedicated to this moment in time.
Shot in South Korea over a period of twelve days, WAVES tells a story of the delicate balance between civilisation and the natural environment in the Korean megalopolis. In an environment dominated by the human being, a new nature that sits halfway between remembrance and popular culture emerges, giving breathing space to a landscape that is painted in the hues of steel and concrete — the intersection in Korea's natural and manmade worlds.
WAVES was showcased at the Slideluck Bologna II event, curated by Chiara Bardelli Nonino (Vogue Italia).
An image from this body of work was selected by the Asia-Europe Foundation for "On The Go", a group show opened in November 2015 in Luxembourg and exhibited in several capitals worldwide including Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia, at the 11th ASEM Summit (ASEM11) in July 2016, and the UN headquarters in New York.
