'Green Shadow'

Seoksu Market, Seoul, South Korea, 2009.

I loved the colour of the market and the jumble of the overhead canopies that protect stalls from typhoon rains and the glare of the sun. Within the labyrinth of alleyways an overhead canopy was woven with green transparent PVC, casting a unique green shadow on the floor below.

Seoksu is a traditional Korean market that is being over-shadowed by modern development. SAP is the 'Seoksu Art Residency' program. The program brings artists to the market place for a few months of the year. The artists use vacant plots as studios and exhibition space, developing relationships with the community, bringing new life and positive change to the market.
