"My Korean house project was about transporting space from one place to the other, a way of dealing with cultural displacement. I don’t really get homesick that much, but I’ve noticed that I have this longing for a particular space and just want to recreate it or bring it wherever I go. So the choice of material was fabric. I had to make something light and transportable, something that you can fold and put in a suitcase and bring with me all the time. That’s actually what happened when I made ‘Seoul Home/L.A. Home.’"
