Pixeled Words is a series of 200 digital drawings of pixelated Korean words and text fragments on iPad. These Korean texts are the extracts from my personal collecctions of notes, letters, doodles, and writings from my notebook. These words consits of different Korean word or sentenxe with various abstract notations, colors, and patterns. The color of each drawing ambiguously represent the hiddne meaning of the text.
The overarching theme of this series is linguistic alienation. Through the acts of smudging, scrawling, scribbling, and pixelating, the text becomes illegible and gradually becomes an image.
By making these elements ambiguous, I wanted to explore the line between text and image, and the moment when text becomes an image (or the other way around).
