Growing (Pains)

This was an independent study project (ISP) advised by Jim Drain. The most challenging part of this ISP was that I had to work from home. The goal of this piece was to experiment with my design practice and explore through different mediums. 

This piece was about self growth and understanding of myself and my past. I wanted to focus on storytelling and represent a piece that would be like a journaling piece. I represented this in a traditional Korean Hanbok. The act of opening and closing the skirt would represent flipping a page of a book. Much of the imagery that was represented in this piece is inspired off of baby photos and Korean symbols.
