2016.09.21 Han river, wider than a mile... #seoul #korea 2016.09.21 After the gallery visits, I went to Jinsuk's place. She cooked and we had a nice dinner. Then we walked to Han River to talk and hang out for a while. #seoul #korea 2016.09.21 I felt like the day's adventures warrant a selfie. #selfie #seoul #korea 2016.09.21 What is your first sighting like? #art #seoul #korea 2016.09.21 Really funny chickens. They will pray to the gods and make your dreams come true. Lol. #art #seoul #korea 2016.09.21 First Sight in Jogja. Works were from an artist residency there. Made me more curious about Yogjakarta. Had a good chat with the curator and she even gave me a catalog of the show and more recommendations on what to explore in Mullae area. More things to find in a different part of the city. #art #seoul #korea
