SHORT LIST

Statement

Tracing dreams

Each building that makes a city starts with a single line drawn on the paper or screen.
Each line contains an intention, and symbolizes a person's dreams, and desires.
Through the planar composition of these lines, a person's collective will become a three-dimensional building.
In this sense, a city is a coalescence that has materialized a multitude of collective wills.
Forming continuous rows, the buildings sometimes merge with each other and sometimes confront each other, composing a city. There is no final blueprint for a city, and it changes from moment to moment, day to day.
How do the individuals living in the city perceive the urban landscape?
As if tracing the urban scenery, I recreate it in flat images anew.

Jury selection
