Dictionary is an installation of printed zines each with size of 11”x8.5”. Along with Jogakbo, fabrci scroll print, Dictionary is also a part of MFA Thesis, You are the Only Sentence I Cannot Throw Away. This installation is currently in view at Jordan Schnitzer Museum of Art at WSU, Pullman, WA.

Inspired with some contemporary Korean poetries, the Dictionary consists of various mysterious writings that are clueless. The imageries embedded on each page are placed either on or next to the texts which adds another layer of mystery. The title of this piece, Dictionary, is chosen to give a paradox to the viewer. Unlike what normal dictionaries do, my Dictionary rejects the viewers’ attempt to decode and interpret the language and hidden nuances.
