This film pays homage to the work of Korean craftsman Kim Soo-Young, winner of the YÉOL Award for Craftsman of the Year 2013. The intense heat required to forge his materials are juxtaposed with the harsh Korean winter landscape in which Kim Soo-Young lives and works.
Korean folk and rock singer, Hahn Dae-soo, recites an original poem written by Yoon Jiyeong that has been inspired by the footage from this film. The music is a track called "her soft circumference" by offthesky. The track can be purchased through bandcamp.com

Due to the low processing temperature of the biodegradable granules we found a way to use a balloon as a flexible mold. After filling the balloon with biodegradable thermoplastic granules we sculpt the mold into an object. When the mold is dipped in hot water the granules melt and bond. After cooling we remove the balloon and a unique object is finshed.
