Zeitreise(Time Travel)

I made this Aquatint plate in Berlin a long time ago. And I printed it on Japanese paper(Awagami) at a printworkshop in my home in Busan in the midst of the gloomy atmosphere of this global epidemic. This picture is about timelessness and dreams. Sounds of memories invites me to reflect on the future. Embracing hope and dream, I embark on a journey that connects the past and future.
