Tracing Sites @Jeju Volcanic Mountain
2018 ACC_R Creators In Lab Showcase, ACC Asia Culture Center, Gwangju, KOR, 2018
Tracing Sites@Jeju Volcanic Mountain is an audio-visual installation that is the fruits of the Tracing Sites project that took place in Jeju Island, South Korea from May to July 2018. By means of digital frottage (Neo-impressionist pointillism + Projection mapping technology), Jeju Island and its volcanic mountains are depicted in a series of images. It is intended to capture the invisible memories and history inherent in the land, as well as the traces of all other human phenomena.
This work consists of a panoramic video of the volcanoes of Jeju Island and the Tsushima Strait, and the sound of the sea of Jeju, the mother of the volcanoes.
The scenery of volcanoes and the Tsushima Strait flow gently sideways at a walking pace. The volcanic scenes unfold while overlapping with the sound of waves, symbolizing the mother sea.
The volcanoes of Jeju Island are the embodiment of the dynamic movement of the earth since ancient times, and are a place where we can see the face of the earth's creation. On the other hand, the current volcanic mountains are theme parks managed by humans as a World Heritage Site, and are typical examples of modern society. In addition, the land is laminated with countless people's activities and emotions that reflect Jeju's turbulent history, which is also closely related to Japan's modern history. We attempt to trace back to the earth's prehistoric memories and transcribe the stacked time of human life continued from the past to the future in a more essential way, by Tracing Sites project in Jeju Island where countless circulations and discontinuities of the human phenomenon are overlapped and entangled.
