Importance of Editing
"How you edit and display it is important."
I went to the Dasan historic site last weekend. I walked through a secluded park. I went to the museum of Silhak (Silhak is the thought representing and standardizing the global change from the 17th to 19th century in the most progressive ways.) where I found a cool place to avoid the sun. The special exhibition was about Lee Soo-kwang, one of the scholars. The exhibition started with Lee Soo-kwang's family tree so that people who are not familiar with Silhak could know about Lee Soo-kwang. The exhibit showed the data he had written to neighboring countries during the Joseon Dynasty. I can see which countries we traded with at that time.
The exhibition hall was very small, but the image was also screened in the middle, adding richness to the exhibition. Most of all, some of the works were exhibited at the National Museum of Korea or elsewhere. It was a replica, and some parts were made in the wrong shape, but it did not matter in this exhibition. It is important to know the international relations of Joseon. Lee Soogwang’s thoughts can be seen through his writings based on the recognition of the world, which he had brought up while traveling to Beijing in the period of turbulence.
So far I have been worried about what kind of excellent work I should prepare for the exhibition. The exhibit itself is important, but what really matters is the director’s thought and the way it is displayed. Once again I recognized how important it is to exhibit things in the right order.
