I heard that the people of Bilbao, Spain have great pride. It is for the city overcame crisis with opportunity.
Although there are places that are centered around and iron mining districts and shine with the outer appearance of iron such as Bilbao and Guggenheim, above all, what left a strong appearance on me for Spain were soccer and even more so, the strong colors.
Korea, too, has a dramatic history and process, which led to a strong color palette of Saekdong (Traditional Korean Colorful Stripes). Based on this commonality, I will use iron to create a “Ribbon certificate” or “Trump”. The dynamically soft ribbon material was made from a strong iron material with a strong static iron material, which attracted a wide variety of the audience’s eyes.
Also, I plan on installing a celebration event by using materials such as balloons.
