“SPoRa” explores themes of migration and the Asian diaspora within a context of
international War. Dohee Lee metaphors Immigration story as Dandelion spore’s long
Journey which tells beauty and hardship of leaving and settling and long thread of stories
between Past to Present.
SPoRA marks the sixth consecutive year of the PURI Project.
Leave, arrive and leave again.
Remain the journey as trace of History
Leave again as dandelion spore
Look at the it’s blossom
Look at the it’s flying away again
We leave again
