Midway into the exhibition, I held a workshop for elementary schoolchildren. After a quick presentation about the project and hiking rules, they assembled four plants using the mountain soil and local plants and together we went up Choansan, a hill near the studio, where they did the mission and planted on the mountain. Assisting me during the workshop are my friends, Kate Kirkpatrick and Hyomin Lee, and the staff of the National Art Studio.
I always think that my primary audience are children, so I was very happy to have done this with them. They asked a lot of questions, and I think they were quite excited with the planting. They loved using the exercise machines and thought very deeply about where they can plant.
Here are some photos:
