Ttukseom Resort: What We Encountered
Amidst the strong windy afternoon, we opened up a tent at Ttukseom resort next to Han River and right under the perpendicular fly-over (above us, of course). The wind was so strong that I finally gave up 'exposing' myself to the wind and ended up entering the cube-like art gallery(?) right next to the park.
It's quite warm and not windy--which was good.The loophole construction simply asserts the fact that this construction is indeed a nice touch to the otherwise barren riverbank at Ttukseom.
As we ventured deeper into the tube, we encountered some exhibitions.
Though we didn't quite get what it was supposed to mean, we found it interesting since there were Hangeul alphabets attached through numerous skewers in such a way onto a green ball at the center which seemed to pop out of the ball.
The second one we encountered was a gallery of portraits taken by children.
Yes, the theme (if I am not mistaken) was 'World as seen through the kids' eyes'
These pictures are taken by the kids and compiled in such a way to create a colorful illusion.
oh, right..that's that the theme.
From within the tube (art gallery), I tried to capture a glimpse of the resort where we're (supposed to be) camping out.
This is what the Ttukseom (뚝섬) resort station looks like. It's just underneath the flyovers. Pillars of bridges and flyovers are scattered in a way....to indicate the fact that even underneath a bridge.. a lively cultural experience is not impossible.
