is the final part of a trilogy which examines identity within an urban environment, envisioning the frenetic dissonance of an urban landscape at once alienating and poetic.
The aggressive pace of pedestrian traffic is portrayed in a blurred and highly saturated manner. A candle flame waves back and forth, suggesting private reflection within the accelerated urban experience. - Seoungho Cho Seoungho Cho, b. 1959, Pusan, South Korea
