Bystander

I was inspired by the highly-discussed "Nth Room" criminal case in South Korea. Many people watched videos of females being trafficked, imprisoned, and secretly filmed, but after the police exposed the personal information of the viewers, they were angry that their personal lives were violated. This reminds me of the attitudes of participants in female-related cases. Many people think that watching others commit crimes will not bring them fault. But inaction and acquiescence are the help of crime. In this work, I let the audience become bystanders. The viewer cannot enter the virtual world behind the door, but can only watch it happen.This work I created during COVID-19 combines the structure of the room to present it
