“Sofia’s Seoul” gets its inspiration from the movie “Lost in Translation.” In the movie, a traveler finds himself disoriented on a trip halfway around the world. For the installation, an online translation program was used to translate text from English to Hangul. A transcript of dialogue from the movie was then printed out, and cut up, letter by letter. The dissected characters are then used to form the “perfectly wrong” translation of the title onto the pedestal.
