Mediacity Seoul 2016

THE FUTURE IS DEAFHOOD
THE FUTURE IS CODING
THE FUTURE IS PUBLIC PRIVACY
THE FUTURE IS RATING TRUST
THE FUTURE IS EXPENSIVE SOLUTION
THE FUTURE IS POST DWELLING
THE FUTURE IS CYBERFEMINISM

Text by Taeyoon Choi:

We collaborated in conceptualizing the piece, Christine took the leadership in designing the wind chimes and Taeyoon focused on the software and hardware. We worked with Small Studio Semi to fabricate the wind chimes in Seoul. The performance was a commentary on the concepts of technological future. Each time we completed one of the seven chapters, we activated an additional wind chime. We also invited the audience to activate the wind chimes by connecting white strings across the gallery space. During an hour-long performance, we were able to stimulate sensorial experience through text on screen (in English and Korean), Korean and American Sign Languages and movement and sound of the wind chimes.
