YOUNG-HAE CHANG HEAVY INDUSTRIES
For artists, progress and success are recognizable not from regular promotions and raises but from irregular and fortuitous 'accomplishments' that are left up to them to define. We defined the FCPA grant as not only a promotion and a raise but a sign that we weren't wasting our time—or if we were, that a credible source was offering us a financial incentive to continue to do so.
