Originating from personal affection toward Seoul, Twelve Scenes portrays the spectacles in daily life by juxtaposing urban space in a twelve month sequence. As the individual particles in a kaleidoscope create splendid illusions by being reflected on a mirror, Twelve Scenes shows our individual life, seemingly separated by time and space, actually composes the scenery in the kaleidoscope of Seoul. Twelve Scenes represents a 'moment for self-reflection' or 'small, but precious enlightenment on life'. The video portrays a poetic resonance through a contemplative viewpoint that captures the vivid spectrum in life.
Twelve Scenes was produced with a 'one scene a month' principle. Therefore, when not being able to capture the right moment or structure, shooting would be delayed until the following year. It took four years to achieve Twelve Scenes, far from the one year project originally envisaged.
