Designers Heeseung Koh

A jewelry that explores the aesthetic quality of an urbanscape.

Heeseung Koh has consistently gleaned, modified, and montaged images and motifs that are commonly found in her surroundings but are considered worthless, such as abandoned structures at a construction site, car tire tracks, and things eroded by time. Cracks, chasm, and grains are often deemed the objects of removal. And yet, the artist sees such scars and remnants as evidence of existence and time. She used to guess the depth of amassed time or one’s existence from the surface of a corroded thing and a puddle in the alley. She tries to recreate such past traces into a jewelry through observation and experiment.
