In Seon’s series titled "Emotional Memories”, composed of photographs and porcelain sculpture, she talks about the memories of emotions present in the unconscious through visual elements. Porcelain is a medium that is both fragile and strong, and thus is symbolically used to mirror Seon’s life. The light painting photography further expresses Seon’s inner feelings in a metaphorical way. The simultaneous rounded and sharp aspects of the shirubean convey the duality of emotions. This paradox embodies Seon's consciousness to compose her unique work. In addition, the photograph, as images superimposed with colours, visualize complex features of emotions and reveals that various elements coexist at the same time. The harmony of paradoxical ideas, such as lightness and heaviness, transparency and opacity, are displayed as complexity in emotion.
