모든 죽어가는 것을 사랑해야지 - Möge ich alles Sterbende lieben














Semester project: "Prologue" (1941) by Yun Dong-Ju, translated from Korean into German (20 pages total).

I translated the poem "Prologue" (1941) by the Korean poet Yun Dong-Ju who lived in Korea during the time of Japanese occupation, from Korean into German. I have always loved his poems for their simplicity, honesty and calmness. I really don't know if the German version measures up to it but I hope it conveys the similar feelings and emotions expressed in the original Korean text. 
The illustrations as well as the texts are all drawn/written with ink pen and afterwards printed  on paper. 

(You can find some of the copies on the Leipzig bookfair this year; Kunsthochschule Kassel stall)

Some work-in-progress of my translated poem book. I translated the original Korean text into German and I’m currently working on a visualisation for a booklet. Found this nice old paper with grids and stole it from my father’s office.
Here are my first sketches/attempts
