<Screen, the overlap of traditions and
modern society> is a media artwork
Sulwha Cultural Exhibition celebrating
its 14th anniversary this year.
Just as our ancestors used to enjoy the
changes of scenery as they opened and
closed the Screens and doors in their houses,
utilizing the media wall as media for the "screen"
in downtown we are looking at the traditions,
and we see the modern society from within.
This year was the year that required consolation
more than any other,
Hoping to sympathize with
viewers who are watching through the enormous
Screen in the city and wishing for the
peaceful days to come back to us.
Participating Works Jong Jung Dong, Dong Jung Dong
“Jong Jung Dong, Dong Jung Dong”
presents images constantly shifting between
3D and 2D,
between matter to non-matter,
and between existence and non-existence.
At the end of the 90-second video,
the materials featured in the artwork seem to
with the artwork altogether. However,
when the image tags hidden near the facade
scanned using a smartphone, the images that
disappeared start to emerge on the screen again.
Viewers can explore another space created
with the re-emerging images
layered on top
of the actual physical space in Samseong-dong,
themselves in the lingering
emotions and feelings evoked by the video.
