A depiction of the variety and uniqueness of human personalities.

From a plethora of different personalities, the author chose 16 based on the MBTI personalities and projected them onto a cycling race as athletes, with each being given a moment to express themselves on canvas.

Though the 16 athletes are the protagonist in their own scene, they appear as background characters in others to continue their tale. It is similar to how within our lives we take center stage, but in other’s we are placed to the sides. At times, the portrayal of myself by myself may overlap with those by others’, but there will also be moments when their disunity is clear, akin to the illustration in the back-end page. Thusly the book depicts the fundamental constructs of society.

Kim, Kyoungshin

Specializing in Painting at university, I participated in several individual and group activities as an artist. In 2012, after completing a course in art therapy, I currently practice art therapy in a development center and teach art lessons to those with a developmental disability. Recreationally, long walks amongst nature to cleanse the eyes and exhilarating bike rides are my favorite activities, moments that are reminisced and put to canvas. To be happy doing activities in a world we occupy, and to understand the differences between my world and others and through this understanding live is what the author wishes to portray in my work.
