Following Numbers

1999~present, photograph, each photo: 12.6 x 8.8 cm
"Following Numbers" is a collection of photographs with numbers from 1 to 1000 taken in different cities around the world - Seoul, New York, Buenos Aires, Paris, Sydney etc. The numbers indicate the street numbers of the places that I have visited. However, in the exhibition space, regardless of when and where they were taken, the photographs become rearranged in terms of the number of the street indicated in the photograph. Placed in such a numerical order, each number comes to indicate the order of each photograph, rather than the street number. The number β€œ1000” represents the 1000 places that I have visited and is simultaneously a commonplace system that neutralizes and generalizes personal experience.
