Amkor Technology | Tempe, AZ
Every piece was designed to communicate the company’s American/Korean culture. Amkor started out as a bicycle company, today its top contractor in chip assembly and testing. Our goal with this project was to merge Amkor from yesterday to today.
My team and I developed a handmade paper art piece designed to celebrate Korean culture. The paper piece was mounted on a handmade bamboo backdrop. Each stick of bamboo was individually wrapped with cord to make the piece stand out with its unique texture.
The #8 piece was inspired by the historic photography of Amkor's factories. They were used and assembled into one unifying mobius strip. #8 is lucky/mobius strip in the asian culture. Amkor stands for American /Korean corp.
With Amkor's home office being in AZ. we wanted to give a nod to our State when visitors from others countries visit the home office. You can see this in the piece titled, "Saguaro".
The "Yes" piece depicts their slogan of "yes" in all the languages they do business in. The artist used strips of the clients journals which are woven into the piece. She also adds a little bit of music lyrics in all of her pieces.The piece depicts their slogan of "yes" in all the languages they do business in.

The 12'x5' photograph was applied to a wood box with encaustic (wax) and later hand applied to each image. The photo collage depicts Amkor from then to today. When you stand back from the piece you see a faint yin/yang flow to the piece. There is a combination of many photos in the entire piece.
