Changmin Han provides unique interpretation of Taegukgi
Themed "Regained Light", his work <Taegukgi> proclaims the beginning of the light's journey. The blue color of Taegeukgi symbolizes yin and the red color yang, while Taegeuk means the balance between the two. This work visualizes the truth of the Mother Nature that all things in the universe are created and evolve by interaction of yin and yang. The audience can understand how yin and yang symbols form Taegeuk forces and their condensed energy spreads across the flag.

<Light being born again>
Themed as light of the past, the work <light being born again> reinterprets classical paintings with the help of modern digital technologies. Starting with Korea's representative classics "Sun and Moon and Five Peaks" to <TV Robot> that paid homage to Mr. Nam June Paik. Classical paintings are used as a medium to travel across the time and space of the past, the present, and the future. In a place where the robot's light stays, the classical paintings are revived in response to modern digital technology and beats. The work shows that classical paintings and modern digital technologies can combine to create new values for the future by portraying the harmonious Dancheong, five directional light, and colorful flowers and butterflies.
