[ EXHIBITION ]
The BFA Graduation exhibition was held successfully during October. the website is at
Here are few photos of projects I liked:
I’ve been busy starting soooo many experimental research projects at the Digital Media Public Art Research Center. It involves lots of LEDs and different materials and some feedback of ideas. I will post it in my project site (www.absurdee.com) once they are almost complete. Meanwhile I wrote two research papers and waiting to get them published in some journals in Korea. I’m not sure if they will *get* my paper.
<Recent Cultural Exploration in Seoul>
Exhibition 신호탄 at KIMUSA was pretty good. I was really happy that I made it two days before they closed. It’s a group exhition of Korean Contemporary artists who are well recognized. It’s not as fresh as Seoul Platform last fall at the same location but, there were few interesting projects.
[ FILM ]
I’ve heard that it’s playing somewhere and realized that there was a special screening of films of Almodova (English subtitled as a plus) at near by theater, Cine Cube. On Sunday morning, in the midst of writing research paper for the deadline, I had to get out of my apt and walk to the theater and watch a early afternoon movie, ‘Broken Embrace’ It was really good. I left the theater with a strong yearning impression. I liked it so much better than ‘Volver‘ It reminded me of ‘Talk to Her‘ Also, scenes that shows a part of ‘A Woman on the Verge of Nervous Breakdown’ really made me want to watch that movie again. It’s been a while since I watched that movie.
[ BOOK ]
<1Q84 by Haruki Murakami>
With so many work schedule, I had to wait few months to read Murakami’s new novel, ‘1Q84′ As the semester ends, finally I could get my hands on the hard cover books (there are two of them) I couldn’t stop reading it so I finished reading them in three days. I thought about a yougn man who went to cats’ world and lost his way back and I thought about how it would be to look at two moons. Even, like one of my student’s project ‘Moon’, I thought about looking at the same moon with someone in distant land. Will that be possible? If even, how do I know?
Unfortunately, I heard that English version will be released in 2011. You have to either wait until 2011 or learn how to read in Korean or Japanese. 🙂
