Anyang at the Dawn of the Day: The City Dreaming of a Utopia/The Voice of Anyang 그 날 새벽 안양, 유토피아를 꿈꾸는 사람들/안양의 소리

Sanghee Song surveys nooks and crannies of Anyang, to find a kind of Utopia as the name of Anyang suggests. In result, she found that Anyang is not any special to be a peaceful and ideal society, but one of the most ubiquitous cities. But, the artist senses the hidden side of Anyang under the ordinary surface. She throws a question that many government agencies, schools, and leisure facilities that are there to make human life more comfortable may actually be a dark system that classifies and inspects the human world and so privacy of individuals may become obsolete and is controlled by a gigantic plan. For [Anyang at the Dawn of the Day: The City Dreaming of a Utopia], the artist quotes from [Perfect Society](1967) by Yoon-Sung Moon, [Brave New World](1932) by Aldous Huxley, and [1984] (1949) by George Orwell. The most part of the story was extracted from the novel as written, or filled with sentences the artist dramatized after she quoted. The part the artist wrote is very small. This kind of writing limits the role of the author as an editor not as a creator, and it shows an approaching style of taking a half step back instead of having her foot in the artwork with an authority.
