Looking Outwards – 11


For this Looking Outwards, I decided to write about the piece Assembly and one of the women involved in its creation. This piece features 5,500 white polymer blocks hanging from the ceiling. Through projectors, each block is illuminated with digital light. What I admire about this project is the use of both physical and digital instruments. I’m especially attracted to the way that light is implemented in this piece, creating a wave like animation. Mimi Son is the co-founder of the Seoul based art studio responsible for this artwork. She studied Interaction Design in Copenhagen, Denmark and got her MA in London, England. Along with working as an art director, she also teaches Interactive Storytelling in Korea.
