Fascinated with how many young Koreans construct lives online, Emil Goh started photographing users of Cyworld, a virtual community that allows users to create rooms using various skins and other icons of furniture and appliances. In Goh's work, these imagined universes are perfect counterpoints to explore the many different living situations in Korea. He describes "regular 3-4 bedroom family apartments to cupboard sized "goshiwons" for cramming students-often wide as double bed." For the group show “r u logged on ^^;?" that opens today, 13 October 2006 and runs through 28 November 2006, at Ssamzie Space, Goh will show his work created in his offictel (office+hotel, a korean multi-use style of dwelling), the mini room that he created in real life based on his online mini room.
