The Silla Collection 100 Project - Seeun Kim
This project consists of 100 brooch pieces. My Silla Collection 100 Project was inspired by the traditional ornaments of the Silla dynasty.
Today, as the quality of life for modern people improves, the younger generation is becoming increasingly inclined to prefer expensive luxury goods; thus, expensive jewellery and ornaments have become a symbol of luxury or vanity.
From this point of view, I think it is important to protect the cultural heritage of our ancestors in a modern society. Thus, I would like to leave a message to modern people through this project that it is essential to protect the cultural heritage of our ancestors.
Then why the Silla period?
In the Three Kingdom period of Korea, the development of ornaments was subdivided, and today we can see the extensive history of metal crafts. Among them, the Silla period can be said to be the golden age of the development of Korean ornaments. Silla is the country in which the most brilliant metal culture flourished, and the metal work was prominent in both quantity and quality. Various types of metal products were produced.
In the Silla period, science and technology were also highly developed, and metal processing techniques such as metallurgy, gold, copper working and plating were developed significantly.
Moreover, ceramics and lacquers were exported to China and Japan as Silla’s special products. The historical and cultural backgrounds of Silla were very impressive to me and inspired me to undertake the Silla Collection 100 Project.
I also think that people who appreciate this project may wonder why I have completed 100 brooches. I think that the number 100 will mean a lot to us today.
I think the number 100 does not simply mean a natural number greater than 99 and less than 101, but it means perfection, maturity, and preparation for what comes next. Furthermore, I think it is a number that represents society.
Water can boil from 100 degrees Celsius; in other words, it is in one state up to 99 degrees, but it generates energy from one degree higher. I think that our society is still at the same level as the number 99 because the people of today have forgotten the value of the cultural heritage of our ancestors.
However, if modern people respect and preserve diverse cultural heritages, I think that they could learn about the various historical, cultural and social backgrounds of their ancestors, which will provide them with an opportunity to expand their horizons. At the same time, I think that if they prepare for the future, their community will be a step forward. Like the number 100.
Finally, this moment in which we are living will also be reflected in our future descendants. This would be the same reason that the number 100 revolves.
