Description

Closed on all Georgia Tech holidays.

This exhibit presents the images taken and artifacts gathered in Korea in 1933 by Dard Hunter alongside the still and moving images and artwork by Aimee Lee inspired by her research visits to Korea in 2008-'09 and '14. Hunter's 20th-century photographs of making hanji (Korean paper) remain to this day some of the most accessible and informative documentation of the process, used by Koreans themselves to educate the public about hanji. Lee's research in the 21st century uncovered not only the traditional steps in making hanji, but a host of paper arts that have been active in Korea over centuries.
