The installation consists of a neon sign and an audio piece on loop. The neon sign bares the phrase “5000 years of history” within the shape of the Korean flag - a phrase present in most cases of both national branding and construction of national pride.

The audio, a recording from one of Seoul´s city tour buses, stands in stark contrast with this pride of history. Only two stops – on a 1,5hr tour – have any historical information. The remainder of the tour concentrates on shopping and mass-consumerism.
