KIMCHI AND CHIPS (KR)
FRI 22.06.12 - SAT 08.09.12
A Journey looks into ways that people can build up a personal journey box using their own memories. Visitors can build up a scene by positioning interactive slides within a box, each of which represents an element of their city.
Kimchi and Chips are interested in ways that people can store their memories inside of a box, and how they animate and add details to those objects. They use non-specific elements in their representation of scenes, so that the user has space to add their own imagination to the box. The user can build up a scene that represents their private journey by selecting and arranging slides in the box. Each slide has a unique identity that is communicated to the box by a set of teeth on the bottom of the slide. The box can then respond by painting light and animation onto the slides using a projector overhead.
