Scratching the Surface

Scratching the Surface
Sandpaper

“Scratching the Surface” is a series of actions in which a very fine grit sandpaper is used to lightly scratch the surfaces in locations in and around the Gyeonggi Creation Center, the nearby city of Anson, Seoul and even the Demilitarized Zone (DMZ). The impressions left on the sandpaper are as indelible as the memories of this journey, and the hope is that, like the faint imprint left behind by the action of the sanding, Richard’s presence in Korea leaves an impression on the places that he has visited as well.
