The Technology Jacket –  2003

For the Kitchen performance, “Afrofuturistic”, Younghui Kim designed a technology jacket with James Tu. This jacket was to create the sense of the over flowing information on everyday objects like a jacket.  The jacket was made with a basic stamp, electro-illuminating wires and panels that are cut in different shapes and sewed onto the jacket with 3 switches inside of the pocket where the performer can turn them on and off.  (The photos taken during performance has been accidentally erased by a colleague – therefore a far shot is only record.)

Venue:  The Kitchen, New York City, 2003


The Realm of Memory, 1999


The Realm of Memory is an interactive installation that structured like a cave. (6ft high 10 ft wide)  The series of drawings are hand-drawn on randome spots of the interior walls of this installation.  A visitor walks in this cave-like space with a small hand light and triggers a piece of memory by looking at the mural drawings.  Non-linear short footages of moving images are projected on the wall covering up the drawing with projected lights on it.  Just like ones memory, short footages are linked with the drawing hints and they are pulled randomly but, relevantly.
