“Images from the Chuncheon Battlefield Memorial represent stages in ongoing educational projects by first year design students generated by the motif of the memorial’s tank. Students are exploring image associations around a set of pre-determined photographic images using digital media. Suggestions of movement are also being explored formally, symbolically and conceptually, through the medium of still-image representation. The project images of the students’ work directed by Simon Larbalestier are static and emblematic, while those directed by Michael Croft imply movement. In the sense that the tank is a motif that viewers walk around, of which students explore and extend the idea of association, viewers are likely to be encouraged to find in the vicinity of the motif, their own associations. In another sense, the tank is a motif that viewers understand through relationship to it of both body and mind. Insofar as mime is a medium that concerns the fundamental connection of mind and body to perception and space, the festival, as an interlude in their project, helps extend these students’ considerations of a motif that has become of visual/material educational interest.”
