"Jimen" is roughly equivalent to ground in English, but it also implies more than a physical ground or surface of the ground, such as geography, a land lot, or the earth. Streets, parks, private lands and floors of buildings are all understood as "jimen." In this study, we pursue the design of jimen by understanding jimen as a large painting, spreading all over the world which has been continuously drawn by the enormous number of people for thousands of years.
I have been taking as much as two thousand of photos of jimen all over the world. "jimen.site" is an archive site of jimen photos taken by me and other researchers.
