SOL is developed in both Korean and English structures and mindsets. It aims to create a bridge between Eastern and Western culture to grow a global community that dialogue through data and images.
The publication is a curated platform that investigates the contemporary scenario through a selection of text, art pieces and photographs.
Based on a cultural and literature approach, each issue focuses on a particular subject in our society and is developed as a collection of imagery that questions the present in every form.
Through the process of exploration and documentation from an individual perspective, it designs a visual statement to challenge the reader.
The first issue of SOL represents the journey to find diverse aspects of ‘Currency’ beyond economics in the society. From the bookstore alley in Bosu-dong and their roots in the past to the dystopian approach of a futuristic Seoul, it makes the audience question ‘what are we on Urban Earth?’
