Intro
One day I saw a cicada stuck on a window.
I could see a cicada's belly through the window, which I have never seen before.
It was both gross and beautiful.
/ Soyeon Kim, ‘glass and mirror’ 

Transparent things are mysterious.

Artist list

Hwaju Lee, Seulki Lee
Blurry borders draw attention from outside to inside. When you looking at things transparent, your eyes may be confused by blurry boundaries and clear inner part.

In this age of AI, cutting-edge sensors and ubiquitous hide their forms under the countless square screens.

We decided to look for the hidden forms. We will put a spell on the shell of things that are close and familiar to us to become transparent.

If you look inside of them, as if you are exploring the unknown world in the body through endoscope lenses, it will be quite scary and quite interesting.



About Studio Obok 

Studio Obok is a design studio composed of members (Hwaju Lee and Seulki Lee) with a special artistic background in crafts, design and engineering.
Studio Obok works on the industrial image. Collect industrial elements and reconstruct them from our formative perspective. We filter the familiar industrial objects through the passage of the Studio Obok.
Rusty pipes, steel structures, and square, colourless buildings. We often feel awkward by the shabby face of a remarkably developed industrial city.
But thanks to the buzzing movements of the old pipes and the machines in the manufacturing plant, we are now.
Is it possible to say that only the lattice pattern found in the palace of Joseon Dynasty and the inlaid celadon of Goryeo Dynasty are Korean things?
Studio Obok does not aim at the Korean image.
We just feel very sad that the lively movement of Cheonggyecheon (one of Industrial complex in Seoul) which is full of rich oil smells, is disappearing.
and we would like to record our undying affection for them in Obok's 'things.
