1. A Familiar Scene from Somewhere

The exhibition displays the horizon of the sun red from the setting sun and the sea, and leaves waving from the wind. The screen that displays the setting sun resembles a weather vane. And the horizon displayed on the slanted screen is consistent. Hyunjin Lee's artwork is quite and still as mentioned above. Hyunjin Lee studied Western Painting in Korea and interactive telecommunications at New York University. She completed doctorate in digital media at the Georgia Institute of Technology. Her remarkable resume allows her to produce art pieces full of brilliant technology. However, her camera focuses on the nature that we do not easily appreciate. That may be why we stop and stay in front of her screen for some time. The images on the screen look very familiar. It is certain that there was once a time when we admired the setting sun and waving leaves though we cannot remember the exact time and venue.

2. Memories of Stone Skipping.

Dad and my cousin are skipping stones in a calm lake. I try to skip stone but my stone sinks to the bottom every time I throw it towards the lake. That's why I disliked skipping stone. Hyunjin Lee allows us to skip stone using Wii as if she is well aware of our memories. Using a long stick instead of a small stone, we pretend to skip stones. And the rock that we throw skip through the water in the screen.

3. Scene from a Bridge

We are standing on top of a bridge. And children are playing across from the bridge. Children enjoy carrying the stepping stones here and there. The mother of the children might be watching the children from somewhere across the bridge not seen on the screen. Her voice can be heard from time to time. Something catches your eyes when you stare at the screen for a long time. The movement of the children and the images of the children reflected in the water do not match. Though the children have already left the site, the image of the children still exists in the reflect. And the screen continues to sen out the laughter of the children. I may have been watching the children from the bridge but the stream and bridge may have been watching us from there place. We say that we remember that place, but the trees, water and bridge may also remember us.

Prologue & Epilogue

Marcel Proust's "A la Recherche du Temps Perdu" includes a scene where Proust strives to remember his childhood. Proust was only able to remember his memories through Madeleine. We meet new people mostly by accident. And the memories of our past accidently breaks into our current time. Hyunjin Lee's work resembles the meetings of people that bring out our forgotten memories. Her work does not show the noisy technology up front, but rather the warm and calm emotions of her mind and soul. And so, her work of the sky, wind, sea and valley where children used to play that we meet in our crowded everyday life is remembered in our hearts as an afterimage.
