Printmaking

The experiments with printmaking techniques have been influenced the way of sharing
Jungmin's memories, dreams, and stories with her family. She studied methods from Archetype Press, Etching, Aquatint, Chine collé, Photo plate, Soft ground, Silkscreen, Woodblock, and Xerox copy collage.

Stanza 4, Harry Gamboa Jr. Poem Project (Archetype Press, 10.5 x 7 1/4 inch), packaged by Professor Gloria Kondrup and TA Shuwen Ding

By receiving the poem Nothing Left by Harry Gamboa Jr., the students in Archetype Press
received each stanza to work on, and to finally put into a book format. 
Jungmin focused on the word "violation"  and tried to share roughness and power by exploring wood rules and square inch cube.

How Was Life? - Mail Art Project (Archetype Press, 8.5 x 5.5 inch)

The question comes from the perspective of last minutes of thinking in life.

Jungmin often reflected about her daily life, and to imagine what could be fixed

or to be better. Sometimes, she found that her surroundings and loved ones could be

missed from focusing on another task. This mail art is to remind people about how one's

life is going and to re-think about how we could live differently from now on.

Falling Leaf From A Tree (Etching, Aquatint, Chine collé on BFK, 9x12 inch)

Jungmin was inspired by listening to the story from her younger sister.

She met a falling leaf from a tree when she sat on the swing during her break time at school.

The imagery of a leaf, surrounding flowers and trees are illustrated,
with Jungmin's photograph 
of sky and mountain from South Korea.
