Alexander Min

Project MOONLIGHT represented by Alexander Min explores his emotions and feelings being a child who faced adversities in the early stages of life. In this project he aimed to embrace, re-live and let go of the moments he cannot fix. This project depicts Alexander's inner states at different stages of his life's journey, inspired by the process of art therapy, a method that facilitates reconnection with one's long-lost inner self.

Where do you see yourself in 20 years?

I don't think about the future that is so far ahead. I prefer to live in the moment and appreciate what is important to me right now.

What is a good design for you?

The design which stimulates your imagination

What was the most challenging experience during your studies?

The process of inner transformation. I had to adapt to leave my past behind and find myself in the new city.
It was challenging to shift my office worker mindset toward an artistic vision.

Who or what inspires you?

My inner frightened and poor child.

How do you approach a new project?

I've been working with a therapist for a few years and I find psychology an exciting process of self-exploration. I have always been thinking about how I could go deeper inside, and the current project helped me to handle my curiosity.

What advice would you give to students who just started studying in your programme?

Work hard and party less. And also, listen to Walter Bergmoser very carefully, he's amazing.

Have you changed during your studies? How?

I feel like a completely new person, Berlin experience helped me to see something in me that was hiding for many years. Now I feel more confident as a person and artist, and plus I have lots of new friends from around the world.

Why did you choose to study in your programme?

Because I love photography.

What are you not going to miss in your studies?

I don't want to think about it. But I'll definitely miss my classmates who became my close friends and I'll miss our classes with Walter.

How are you going to celebrate your graduation?

The less you know the better you sleep.

Say hi!
