+ work

At the end of the stairway leading up to the second floor there is an installation work by artist Boo Jihyun. This is an importance space which acts as a corridor and links two spaces. However, for people using the space this area is just void. The fishing lamps that hang from the ceiling move slowly. Because of this special work the corridor is no longer just an empty space. The space carries a new meaning like the places that we discover when we are on a journey.
