The final result was a sign that touched on my Korean American roots and my graphic design background. A play on the ubiquitous OPEN sign that inspired me to take the course- instead of an open place it reads as an “open mind” [정신 (精神) = "Mind"]. In the same way that the conventional OPEN sign allows people to enter a space, this sign serves as an invitation for an open mind and the thoughts that flow inside.
정신 (精神) = "Mind"
English + Hangul (modern Korean language) +
Hanja (traditional Korean borrowed from Chinese characters)
The final showing for the sign took place just before ArtCenter had closed their campus and made the transition to virtual learning, and before the city issued a shelter in place due to COVID-19. In light of a lot of things happening right now it seems especially relevant; to constantly strive to have an open and clear mind for making decisions, being aware of the realities we can find ourselves in.
