     Using paper that was invented in China and introduced into
    Korea around the 3rd Century, Sookkyung Park utilizes this
    material to explore the connections between people. Through
    the repetitive process of folding and threading paper, the artist
    expresses harmony and community through structure and
    form. Paper has a rich cultural significance as she grew up in
    Korea where the windows and walls were made of paper. In
    her exhibit, she intends to define the flexible characteristics of
    paper, its indispensability along with its strong natural power
    of being made from wood.
