Artist: Howool Baek

Title: NOTHING for body
selected work for Essere Creativo 2015
With the support of Forum Austriaco di Cultura
The body is the stage, fingers and toes are the dancers.
Delicate expression of small part of the body is shown through the space which the body builds. I tried to find how the part of the body moves like whole body and the possibilities that they can express like a human.
