Project Title: Fragments 03: Reconstructing History and Memory in East Asia
Client or Class Name: Paiknam Art Hall at Hanyang Women's University, Seoul -

This poster was created to promote a new media art performance titled “Fragments 03: Reconstructing History and Memory in East Asia.”

New media artists, jazz musicians, and actors participate in this performance that talks about a historical event involving a ship that was sunk with 3.3 tons of copper-nickel coins in an East Asian coast during the Second World War. Elly Cho, an artist and director of this show, reconstructed the story into a fictional new media performance.

We used two elements of the performance in creating this poster. First, we used elliptical shapes to visualize coins sinking with the boat. The second motif is jazz music, whose dynamic movements are visually expressed through texts, and typography, on the poster.
