Moveable Types and Instant Spaces

Artists: Taeyoon Choi, Tellef Tellefson and Cheon Pyo Lee

Moveable Types and Instant Spaces explores how temporary types of architecture can define an experience, and alternatively how social or personal actions and objects can change the perception of a space Lightweight materials are used, suggesting to the viewer that architecture is a concept rather than a reality and that it has less importance than that which it contains. “Pod types” are lightweight architectures that play off of existing sites. They human in scale and can be placed temporarily within the landscape. Working off the idea of wearable architecture, these small types strive to create personal space in the public realm. Each pod type derives its function and a minimum of form from the objects it contains, and in exchange the function of the objects is altered by the architecture.

For Container Culture, a 20-foot shipping container is used to create and store various pod types during the exhibit. It is a gathering place for artists and viewers to appreciate private moments in public space.

Love Virus

Artists: Joon Kim and Woosuk Jang

The online project Love Virus was started in August 2004 with 8 artists from various artistic disciplines such as photography, moving image, interactive art, performance, and painting. Love Virus is run not only as a popular art blog site, but as an organization for young artists and their fans to meet through various fun-filled offline events. Their focus is to make unique human relations through media and art. Among the 21 original participating artists in Love Virus, Kim Joon and Jang Woosuk will perform the art project “Delivery.”

Both exhibitions are curated by Soh Yeong Roh
