Summary of project:

Outlander n: A foreigner, alienated from their natal conditioning by social, cultural and physical difference.

As a foreigner in Asia, the intensity of urban life is a confronting experience; social and cultural peculiarities attribute to a sense of displacement. The shift in the customs, the order and the function of society not only make one feel alien; often you are perceived as one in turn.

Outlander is a curious, childlike observation of human behaviour in the South Korean urban landscape. It explores not only the vibrant eccentricities unique to this mono-cultural society, but it also looks to examine how humans (and creatures) interact within this setting.”
