Traveler’s Cup is a series of digital pigment prints by Colorado-based artist Joo Yeon Woo that features symbolic representations of cultural displacement.
By shrinking monuments and architectural landmarks, making them compact enough to fit into a cup, Woo explores the idea of disconnection from culture and origins. Whether it’s through physical relocation or simply via the digital era we live in, where much of the world is seen on a screen, it’s all far from the actual source.

When travelling the path of life, and finding love along the way, Everything looks new and different. Little do you know it is the same old landscape you used to see all of the time; Love has just given you new eyes.
Time lapse of Hurricane Sandy
This video will always give me shivers, not only because of the storm but myself being there when it happened, so you could say I was part of this history. Although where I stayed (Mid Manhattan) where there wasn’t as heavily affected, I couldn’t imagine what other areas were badly hit and think of those affected/killed, condolence to those who lost loved ones and those who survived but lost everything/damaged properties. I leave New York remembering not by the storm but what stood out is the courage and spirit of New Yorkers to get back to what things were after the storm hit, as an Australian, that’s what I like about Americans.
I’m heading to the United States (2nd trip, last one was in 2010) in a few weeks, October/November and would love some recommendations, in terms of where to eat and visit (nightclubs, bars and etc) I’ve done heaps the last time I was there, but I felt I missed other things out which I didn’t get a chance to do. I know what some are but I am no expert traveller so I’m asking for those around the areas to help a tourist out? :)
The following cities I would be visiting is;
- San Francisco
- Las Vegas
- New York
- Los Angeles
So, help a tourist out, lol?
