Where Did the Many Schoolgirls Go?
2018
An interpretation on how Korean women’s voices are erased by the media. Based on a poem by Moon Jeong-hee published in 2001 of the same title. 17 years from then, schoolgirls are still vanishing, and the question is still valid.



The visual elements are built with a graduation photography from Ewha Hakdang, Korea’s first educational institution for women, and the first issue of The Ladies’ Daily in 1947. Typographic features intentionally avoid readability to visualize how women are framed to be unknown and unseen.


The booklet is a result of 10 layers of translations performed by Google Translate as a metaphor to erased voices in history.
+ Note that the final outcome had erased the name of the author, but the title of question intact.
