 Baengnyeong island is an insecure and isolated territory where the tension between the North and South Korea still exists. Put this superficial view on the island aside, life surrounded by the sea - people living in there, natural objects like trees in the forest and pebbles on the seashore - was photographed at every 10 meters apart for 4days. The photographs were connected to one panorama. The panorama shows natures and military facilities of the island in the same picture.
 The operation of military troops defending the South has become the most essential reason for the island’s existence. Military installments in the photographs manifest how the island is invaded by the political conflicts and collisions, showing a sharp contrast to the nature of the island.

 Eoritgol beach, the far-north of the island where civilians are allowed visit, is known for the Dragons teeth and seagulls. I will go there and build a wall as high as I can, which will protect me from the outside world. The wall divides the place into inside and outside depending on where I stand. A step forward or backward decides enemies and allies. The absolute violence and cruelty is what NLL and the 38th parallel, the artificial border around sea lines and waves,demonstrate.
