Bolim Jeon – In the Belly of a Whale – United Kingdom

As we put ourselves into an “autopilot” mode, we disconnect from our surroundings. These spaces contain quietness, indifference, daydreams, endurance, and idleness. The work presents a bleak train carriage filled with faceless avatars and chaotic chunks of text. It depicts the commute as a liminal experience between arrivals and departures.
