This film features an island, the southern most point of South Korea, which requires less than an hour to cover its terrain. On the island, there are two extremely contrasting atmospheres: crowded hoards and hours of emptiness. These emphasise its position geographically and psychologically as an island.

In a filmic relationship, gazing at some residents on the island, the questions 'where are you now?', 'why are you here?' and 'what happened to you?' would be asked to the film’s subjects, audience, and the director-self.

  • My practice serves as my response to questions triggered by those who make me curious or concerned. Using my camera I explore my subjects’ worlds. 

    In particular, I attempt to create a thought space for the subject, audience and artist–myself that prompts a questioning of my subjects’ lives, guided by questions we might have about attending carefully to the lives of one another.
