Sang-Mi Yoo photographs homes that are at the edge, where urbanization and tradition meet. After studying and selecting different architectural structures of residential houses, she transforms the original photos into organic patterns, using collages, drawings, paper/felt laser cuts and prints. Various cookie-cutter homes resonate an archetypal architecture residing in her memory, questioning whether her memories of an ideal home were ever uniquely “Korean.” The juxtaposed installation of photo-based prints and laser cut wool felt creates optical illusions through distortions of the original houses, which compares the notion of ideal home as a tangible subject versus illusion.
