In musical terms, flat notes are notes that sound semitone lower than notes that appear on the lines and spaces of a musical staff. In the note B-flat, the notehead bears the same notehead with an * symbol. Flat notes are universally indicated by the * symbol of which the artist was inspired to resemble in the head and bodice of the barbie doll.

Story of Barbies
There is always music in Jeongwon Yoon’s studio. Yoon is a classical music fan and starts her work day with the sound of Choral Music. The classic radio stations become like a friend for the artist. For Yoon, Barbie is a musical note within the music that she can see and hear.
