Cho Kyoungjae

He designs the actual space within the view created through the camera lens to resemble an abstract painting and records the process through taking pictures. Having concentrated on the condition, coloring and texture of manufacturing materials that we commonly have access to, such as lumber, iron plates, plastics and styrofoam, he manipulates these materials within the actual space, as it would be done with the touch of a brush or coloring, and designs a different space utilizing the materials in a fashion unrelated to their original function or use. After checking the display within the viewfinder, the actual image is then manipulated once to make corrections. This process is then repeated until the product is complete.
