Hangeul Framework


Hangeul Framework was realized in the context of the 3rd Hangeul Design Project <Transformations: Experiments in Hangeul Design>, an exhibition by the Hangeul National Museum in Seoul.

This work presents the distinct structural features of Korean alphabet, called “Hangeul”, which allows vast number of combinations of vowels and consonants, in the form of three-dimensional modules. In order to visually express “moasseugi”, an invisible square frame for the syllabic arrangement, we created six-sided blocks, each made up of different materials. The initial, medial, and final phonemes are respectively made from different materials, resulting in interchangeable and complementary combinations of colors and materials.
