Eunhyung Chung

I have lived a life achieving the goals which were generally considered desirable. I just followed what others pursue without knowing what I really want to do. The society was always trying to push me in a safe direction with no risk and it seemed there was a very specific road to take, a 'right' way of doing things to become a good citizen. Thus, in this video, I appear as a bug which has two eyes on each side, but not in the front. It shows that I cannot look forward because I cared a lot about what others think. In this performance, I tried to move forward struggling to be in the yellow safety line that the society and my parents have drawn for me. To me, this was the view to be considered reasonable as well as natural.
