Brainstorm and design a realistically viable concept memorial remembering a particular event. Considerations of space, access, and interaction with the memorial's own environment is vitally central to the conceptualization.
North Korean Famine of the mid-1990s
A series of bowls of variable sizes but uniform in structure, material, and color scattered within an open landscape close to the North/South Korean border.
- Bowls collect debris (leaves, snow, grass, rain) dependent upon the seasons to symbolize a metaphorical feeding/rememberance of the North Korean hungry in the past as well as in the present.
- Relative low maintenance necessary
- Visitors pay respects from a distance from the top of the hill to see the vastness of the memorial (capturing the expansive nature of the famine itself)
