Walking to My Grandfather’s Mound

Walking to my grandfather’s mound is a narrative project by Taehee Whang.

Guided by their grandfather's enduring love, artist Taehee Whang hopes to reconnect with him after his death. Taehee navigates time, distance, ancestry, and tradition to reach their grandfather's burial mound on their own terms via Google Maps. A virtual journey from Brooklyn, New York to a burial site just outside of Seoul, South Korea reveals what's possible when we can still feel the love and strength given to us by someone long ago.
