We receive a task under the concept "-ism" and we got "Optimism" (word), silk (material), printing (process). So we separate all these three words into a mind map and combine all these 3 words together.
- hopefulness and confidence about the future or the success of something.

He was born in South Korea, left to study in the USA, settled in New York, moved to Berlin then chose London as his home. He said that "We've all moved ", "We've all had to leave home." So he uses his artwork to memorialise the place he's lived in.
He has ruminated boundaries of identity and connection between individual and group over global cultures. He duplicating of the places which he has lived or worked into 1:1 scale with translucent fabric into 3D sculpture. He uses the idea of Migration, Transience and shifting identities because he came from different countries. "I see life as a passageway, with no fixed beginning or destination," says Do Ho Suh "We tend to focus on the destination all the time and forgot about the in-between spaces that nobody really pays attention to, these grey areas, one cannot get from point A to point B."
I like how he transforms fabric into a 3D shape. Also, telling a story about where he has been living through his work.
Brian Donelly know as Kaws he is my favourite artist. I have a chance to see him because he has an exhibition in Bangkok, Thailand. The sculpture has a huge reaction on people. It makes people stop and interact with the work rather than the picture.

My group was thinking about the object that influences people to be optimistic, so we came up with Japanese lucky charm.
Omamori is a Japanese lucky charm. People believe that it will give them protection or bring luck. The amulet covering is usually made of brocaded silk and encloses papers or pieces of wood.
In my opinion, when I saw the flower pattern in this lucky charm it makes me think in a positive way because of the smell of flowers.
