This is a story of a foreign woman who seeks ‘snow’ in Los Angeles. She missed snow which reminds her motherland South Korea. At the same time, she identified her with snow as a stranger in Los Angeles. However, her seemingly impossible attempt encountered unexpected results. Interestingly, Los Angeles was full of numerous different representations of snow. There were lots of synthetic snow effects for Hollywood movie industries. From discovering a special effect factory called ‘Snow Business Hollywood’ to ‘Magic Snow Co.’ which is working for shopping malls in downtown L.A, her personal longing about snow meets with our more fundamental desire towards elusive magic and illusion.
