…ZU’s photographs are taken with his whole body. It means he does not see the world with one eye. Seeing is an act of the whole body. Seeing is made by the body. ‘Seeing’ (voir) is knowing (savoir). In other words, seeing something is knowing this through the entire body. This is a sort of accepting. Seeing is not a passive act but actively embracing something. It shows my body’s perceptual response gazing at the object. The object I see is neither fixed nor completed. It remains variable and ambiguous as discontinuous being floating under the control of time. The truth of the true nature of a specific object is also under the control of time. If so, it can be said that the true nature or original look of an object is absent. As a result, a belief that we can represent and depict objects accurately is denied…

– Park Yong-taik, Art Critic & Kyonggi University Professor


…“Sky is round and ground is squire(天圓地方).”It means a world view of old Chinese in <呂氏春秋傳 Yosichunchujeon> of country Jin. Spaces they belong to is another world. There is an around world, a their imaginary world to any one. To show it, it presents shaking world movement and a visional coming world. It shows us a world we are not able to see by presenting a hidden world as well as a faced one….
