Image Translation -Young Zelkova Tree- (2020)  This is the last part of my research of using visuals as an alternative to texts. With this step, a short story called ' Young Zelkova Tree' written by ShinJae Kang in 1960 was visually translated. The story is about a forbidden love between the eighteen year old Sukhui and her stepbrother Hyongyu. The story celebrates the new era by breaking the social norms and conventions with the younger generation's relationship. This visually translated literature is divided into 3 chapters. Each chapter has the main summary video which is consist of 4-5 videos that are inspired by key sentences.
‘He always smells of soap.’
‘He is sitting down with his face half turned, peering through the window at the rose bush outside…Even the side of his countenance that he would rather not reveal to me looks attractive.’
‘I had a sip and looked up at him…appeared to be overtaken by a gush of emotion in that short moment.’
‘The brief moments of cheerfulness and happiness I have experienced cannot be mine for long; aren't they manifestations of my own sorrows and torment?’
Chapter 1 Beginning of love Unsure about each other’s feelings Lost in the waves of strong emotions (mostly excitement) Key sentence: ‘How do I appear on his eyes?’
