Depth of the Shadows

Two people who met for the first time join hands and enter the space.

The existence of this space is being driven by algorithms.

Therefore, no matter exists in this space.

 

Whilst holding hands, the two have to grasp the shape of the internal space relying solely on light and shadows. In addition, the two must use the torch they are holding on to discern the size, position and shapes of the shadows to move around the space, following the algorithm given. This algorithm is expressed through music. Also, based on algorithm, more music will be added as the audience/participants’ movement trajectory accumulates. The attached music differs based on the relationship of space. As such, this relationship of space is defined by the two people in the space.

 

One of the persons standing moves towards the wall.

Thereafter, hang upside down on the floor by supporting, pushing feet against the ceiling.

 

This relationship allows people in the space to grasp each other’s positions relative to each other. This new virtual space is broken up at the end, returning one to the reality. After this, those who had experienced a new relationship in the space will then realize that it is no longer the same space as the previous experience. Through this, one can experience that the relationship between one and the other party is relative.

Inter-Cumulation

Inter-Cumulation is a team of four students from different majors, such as Jeeyoun Kim from Architecture, Minjin Jeong and Sooyeon Choi from Multimedia, and Jun Ryu from Music Technology.

To create one experimental piece of work, individuals who relish spatial and visual forms of experiments were gathered and this work was kick-started off not with a story, but rather through experimenting within the space itself. Research was conducted on how to portray the interpersonal relationships among people without the need for a symbolic story.  In particular, they wanted to create a project where the play unfolds as the audience interacts amongst themselves and such interactions accumulate to interact with the next play. Such an intention is reflected on the team title.

Jeeyoun Kim
Director, Project Manager

Jeeyoun Kim, who majored in architecture, learned that she could get a glimpse of people’s lives through space. Therefore, Kim wants to visualize the invisible regularity of space, express the concepts that are taken for granted again as space, and look at the world more sharply. For this reason, her experiment is conducted to create new possibilities previously missed by digging into, decomposing, and recombining the elements. And she is working on expanding experience in space by connecting with the actions that take place in this space.

Minjin Jeong
Graphic, Art Director

Minjin Jeong, originally majored in scenic arts, had changed his major to multimedia video as he became interested in virtual space production. By participating in projects in various fields such as video and advertising, performances, media facades, indie games, and stage videos, he is considering what future media art will look like and what direction he can try.

Sooyeon Choi
Video Director

Sooyeon Choi is majoring in multimedia video and studying visual media derived from stories or series of messages. ‘Choi trying to create a persuasive artwork by thinking that the overall structure and technology of the work, visual, and the direction of the suggested space should be moved under the “message” pursued by the creators.

Jun Ryu
Music Director

Jun Ryu, in charge of music, graduated from the Department of Visual Arts. He has been playing guitar in various indie bands since 2007. Currently, he is studying in the music technology department in K-Arts. Starting from popular music, now he tries sublimating invisible things, such as non-music and technical errors, into sound art. Currently, he is researching the spatiality of virtual reality and the possibility of sound art.

Teri Seo
Choreographer, Performer

Teri Seo, who majored in choreography, has been conducting experiments to choreograph the movements formed by directing the body parts such as the head, hands, and feet in accordance with the 12 directions that occur in harmony with the three movements of the spine (front, back, left, right, twist) starting with (2017). Seo researches the choreography of dancers who intuitively analyze classical music and add their own subject matter. The research is about the rules of choreography through music, and it is the work of music becoming a dance. She has a vision of creating and choreographing dance works that continue with this research and attempts.
