Lost in Translation, 2017–ongoing
The body of work Lost in Translation explores the notion of communication and how language barrier can transform one’s personal identity. Constantly struggling and overcoming linguistic and cultural barriers, he is submerged and lost in the gap between two distinct cultures and languages, where he feels conflicted and disassociated. Through the process of translation, he strives to decode and give definition to his true origin and voice.
The Korean War, also known as The Forgotten War, never resonated with the American public in the way that World War II did. The war lasted three years, one month and two days and ended in an unsatisfactory stalemate on July 12, 1953, at 10:12 am. No peace treaty was signed and the war resolved nothing. Although a cease-fire agreement was signed, the political tension remains high as a heavily militarized “demilitarized zone” (DMZ) divides the nation in half. The War resulted in a Stalemate.
