The Monument (2009)
newspapers and glue

I have tried to create an installation by using old newspaper. First, I collected old and various newspapers and made dice forms. I needed to put air into the pieces of the newspapers to get the dice form newspaper balloon. After installing many newspaper dices, I will create a monument made of newspaper.

I felt that I could reduce my terrible feeling with what is going on in the world, while I create dice pieces of newspaper. After creating many dice paper balloons, I have created a monument, my feeling is getting happiness.

As I love newspapers and the information they communicate, I want to honor by the process of sharing the truth by creating an art work with various, colorful, useful old news paper for the great section of news paper and I want to honor the reporters who died while they were trying to get good news and who are in prison for their works.
