Eternal Testimony | 2018-2020

As of Jun 2020, there are only 17 survivors of the Japanese military comfort women. We are initiating the 'Eternal Testimony' project, a novel way to preserve our history for all perpetuity in a vivid and memorable way. Inspired by NDT project at USC (https://sfi.usc.edu/collections/holocaust/ndt) for holocaust survivors, the 'Eternal Testimony' project records the testimony of the victims of Japanese military comfort women in a new way. With artificial intelligence technology, we offer a virtual experience of meeting and interacting with them in person. This project, started in 2018, is on-going project and is currently sponsored by Ministry of Gender Equality and Family. In 2020, we held a pilot beta exhibit in the LeeJuYeon Gallery at Sogang University. We plan to have a 6-month beta exhibit before the official world-wide exhibit in 2022.
