[The Chosun Ilbo, December 24 2007] Designer Park Jin-woo Stirs Comedy With Style

A few days ago an unusual Christmas tree was set up next to the Hammering Man kinetic sculpture in front of Heungkook Building in Gwanghwamun, Seoul. Called Christmas Factory, the tree features clockwork snowflakes and a phalanx of steel robots arranged around it.

"There might be a factory that churns out Christmas somewhere in the world that nobody knows about," said designer Park Jin-woo, 34, as he fiddled with his fake Warhol-imprinted Louis Vuitton wallet.
