Bachelor of Fine Arts (BFA)
A long time ago in a far away galaxy,
there was a star shining alone in the deep darkness.
The beautiful star aged and exploded into a supernova,
where her golden light scattered into the tiniest sparkles of dust,
pouring down to Earth.
Made of Stardust,
humans naturally have responded to the divine light that they carry inside their souls,
through diverse acts of enlightenment such as art, religion, and science.
As a Stardust, an artist, a Korean, and a woman,
I keep walking in between opposing forces and varying perspectives
until I transcend their boundaries and reveal their glittery metaphysical bonds.
