A visitor’s view
Pyongyang radically altered my conventional process. Here, I was a visitor, invited to observe but unable to immerse fully into place. Typically, I wander freely, without boundaries. North Korea’s capital edited that prerogative. Instead, scheduled and tightly planned, I walked well-trodden routes as I was invited to marvel, like tourists before me, at a ‘socialist wonderland’. The dissonance between place and process became a dominant theme throughout my time in the city, and later, during the drawing process itself.
