世紀末色 Segimal Colour (2019)  ‘Segimal(The end of the century) Colour’ reflects my personal story in Tokyo with the pictures I took. The work was originally tilted as 'Plastic Blue' with highly saturated blue-colored photos. Although I had never visited Tokyo until 2016, I was already overly exposed to it through media. As a consequence, media-made stereotypes affected me greatly and I unconsciously made a decision to visualise my expectation, not my experience. I imagined Tokyo would be a plastic and futuristic cyberpunk but in fact, it is analogue and nostalgia. It almost seemed as if its time has stopped in the 90’s. I wanted to redo it to visualise my true impression of the city. The first part of the work is the pictures of Tokyo in 2016 and Seoul in 1996 to see how similar they are, even though there is a 20 year gap between two cities. In the second part, my childhood stories are hand-written next to photo montages and the last part is structures remind me of 90’s.
