In the scenery spreading around Buk -aksan, there are Koreans and foreigners dressed in suitswho came to the Russian Embassy, ​​Bae Jae-kyong, Deoksugung.

Architect Tesoc Hah, a planner, says, “I was able to experience the scenery and prospects of the city center of Seoul at that time by using interactive media techniques.” The exhibition, which reconstructed the lives of Korean missionaries Appenzeller and foreign residents who set up the school, has many stereoscopic images besides map images. Appenzeller and acquaintances Draw a line on the wall and shake hands toward a person, and the reader reproduces the character’s history on the wall. A kaleidoscope of scenes can also be seen in the landscape of the shipwrecked missionary’s young daughter. The two exhibitions, which are packed in the flow of seeing our modernity again, are likely to be echoed in other exhibitions as it is an experimental attempt to find the public contacts of the modern person exhibition.
