"Works in the open air" appears in a staggered vertical composition. The words are printed in varying shades of blue, with different textures (lined, dotted, etc.). They are integrated into a larger composition of abstract designs (yellow and purple) and Hangul text (red), as if in layers. Beneath these layers, small human figures are lightly outlined against the white background. They are shown in various poses of relaxation and play.

These are successful examples of layering and transparency through there use of varying colored shapes on top of objects with a transparent fill.
