They are there(2020)
Running Time: 2min 54

There are there

If you don’t notice, you can’t see them. They exist and are there for us. They are dancing with the wind and telling us their story.  Whenever you look back, they will be there.

  주의깊게 보지않으면 그들을 볼수없다. 그들은 존재하고 우리를 위해 거기에 있다. 그들은 바람과 함께춤을 추며 그들의 이야기를 한다. 그들은 당신의 뒤에 있을것이다.


Yeo (2020)
Running Time: 1 min 46sec

Yeo

Yeo is short for the Korean word Yeoja. The meaning is the woman. In nature women are free and there are no interruptions. Women absorb nature’s energy and become one with it. I’ve obscured the word in the beginning and end of the video to show how the water cleanses us between when we enter and leave this world. The label YEO is given to us while we are alive but is released after we surrender ourselves back to nature. 
녀는 한국어 여자의 줄임말이다. 의미는 여자이다. 자연에서의 여성은 자유로우며 방해를 받지 않는다. 여성은 자연의 에너지를 흡수하고 점차 그것과 하나가 된다. 나는 이 단어를 초반과 결말의 비디오를 가려서 우리가 태어나고 떠나는 이 세상을 어떻게 물이 우리를 정화켜 주는지 보여준다. 


Leaf Bug (2020)  
Running Time: 2min 54 

Leaf Bug

A man walks through a field and becomes a huge leaf bug. He sees through bug eyes and is free to fly in the sky with his wings. We came from nature and will go back to nature. We might become flowers, animals, butterflies, or even a bug.
한남자가 들판을 향해 걸어가다 점점 거대한 잎벌레가 된다. 그는 벌레의 눈을 통해보고 자유롭게 날개짓을 하며 하늘을 난다. 우리는 자연에서 와서 자연으로 돌아갈것이다. 우리는 아마도 꽃,동물, 나비들 또는 벌레조차 될지도 모른다.


Mystery Syncopation (2020)
Running Time: 2min 15

Mystery Syncopation

On the bamboo mountain, you can feel the wind and hear the leaves moving around like dancers. I found a worm in the wind that was trying to go somewhere without any noise. I am the worm going to the next chapter in my life. There are always challenges and the wind is the environment that I have to fight. I am surrounded by the wind.
대나무 숲에서 대나무 잎들이 마치 댄서들의 움직임과 같다는 느낌을 받을수 있다. 내가 찾은 벌레 한마리는 심한 바람이 몰아칠때 아무소리없이 묵묵히 어디론가 가고있다. 나는 어디론가 또하나의 내 삶의 여정을 향해 가는 한마리 벌레이다. 항상 도전들과 바람, 환경에 나는 싸워야 한다. 나는 바 람에 둘러싸여 있다.


Windwalker (2020) 
Running Time: 1:20 min

Windwalker

I shot the video in two locations: Horseshoe Bend, AZ, and Red Rock Canyon, NV this past December. Amazing landscape, red-colored rocks, and plants to explore with a 360-degree camera. I feel the air, wind, sand, rocks, and cacti. I am like the wind and can travel to a different dimension where life is untouched by time. 


Unity (2019)
Running Time: 2 min 22

Unity

Life is short and beautiful. I use nature to talk about life and death. A man, a woman, and other people are all living in this tiny world. We are a part of beautiful Mother Nature. She is amazing and in the afterlife, we will go back to Her. In the beginning, you will see the man and woman are surrounded by a butterfly dancing tree. People ultimately go back to Mother Nature to become one.


Green Beetle (2019)
Running Time: 3 min 20

Green Beetle

Man, woman, goldfish, water, trees, and the sky have become a green beetle.
We are surrounded by Mother Nature and our movements combine in beautiful harmony.
My intent is to preserve the pristine environment as a way to advocate conservation and sustainability.


Air Walk (2017)
Running Time: 3:12 min

Air Walk

I used a 360 camera to capture nature and art; the joys of my life. Nature at the beginning is the birth of life. The transition to the colorful city highlights the innocence of adolescence. Finally, in death, we return back to the silence of nature. The 360 view captures more than just our narrow first-person perspective which led to the title Air Walk. This is the view we have as spirits after we leave our bodies. I am the air that can fly in the sky and freely go anywhere I please. I am the air; surrounded by air.


Ocean Spider (2019)
Running Time: 3 min 12

Ocean Spider

The Ocean Spider presents a different perspective of Mother Nature. The movement, clean sand, and skyline create dreamy hypnosis. I love New York City but I also love nature. After so many years of city life, I realized that I needed nature. While traveling to South Carolina’s Folly Beach I found a beautiful location where the pier was the convergence of a manmade structure and the ocean. With this piece, my goal is to bring nature to the city like a souvenir. I shot the video in the morning and afternoon to capture two different types of lighting. Each of these represents a different feeling. Early in the morning is cool and clear which gives me a feeling of calmness. In the afternoon, the brighter light and color give me a feeling of happiness.
