There are too many people to acknowledge individually for making my work on this LandMarks2017 project possible. I hope those not named, but involved at various levels, understand that I very much appreciate their efforts and labour.
My grandparents and parents have always taught me that everything and everyone is interconnected.
Each part is integral to the whole.
For their sustaining love and enduring belief in my practice, my gratitude goes out to my extended family and circle of friends and colleagues. My parents, Chung Soon Yoon and Myung Choong Yoon braved the cold during the production of the video as did my children, Hanum Yoon-Henderson and Kihan Yoon-Henderson.
