Posters around Seoul

What is changing in Seoul? I can tell you. It is above all the visual complexity and sophistication of the posters and signs. I have watched them emerge from a rather square and flat banality to become ambiguous and compelling glyphs and ciphers. One of the great pleasures for me is seeing all this intriguing commercial art.
