Does North Korea have Internet?

2019 / Video nstallation

What: Exploring the conflicting ways that North Korean technological knowhow is portrayed in the international news media.

Why: North Korean technology comes across as highly advanced in some online news bulletins, while others paint a picture of it as hopelessly outdated, imagining a technological gap that would be impossible to bridge in a potential unification with South Korea. Both portrayals seem to stem from a desire to define this neighbouring country about which so little is known.

How: By highlighting these two vastly different ‘truths’, June Park questions the way we perceive the information we encounter online or in the news and invites other people to do the same.

“How can the news portray totally opposite truths?”

This thesis investigates into how our point of view on North Korea is formed in an environment where it is hard to obtain desired information from North Korea. The research specifically focuses on the discourses regarding access to the internet in North Korea and how this example is used to reinforce the image of the country as a hermit kingdom.

I Consume Therefore I am

2018 / Book

Consumption has become an inseparable element of contemporary individual lives. As a consequence of the strong association between daily life and an overloading amount of consumption, it is challenging to consciously keep track of even one’s own consuming activities. This project is an experiment to record and measure my own daily consumption, as a method to understand what consumption means nowadays.

Non-Blind spot

2017 / Poster, book
Poster – 420 x 594 mm, Offset Printing,
Book – 258 x 182 mm, 120 Pages, Offset Printing, Perfect Binding, Softcover

Design for graduate exhibition at Duksung Women’s University. With the title, Non–Blind Spot, I created the poster based on the geographic information of the location. I embraced the current data by making a transparent contour map of the location of the university as ironic view on the theme. This emphasizes that nobody can see the full shape of location while they are at the location.
