Nowadays, the word fusion / collaboration is spreading like fashion, but the synergy effect is amazing every time. Recently there was another interesting collaboration. Architecture, art, and science all have different genres, but they have creativity in common. What will be the result when these three genres meet? On the 16th, there was an opening in Space Philox of ARKO Museum of Art. Architects, artists, and scientists team up to exhibit four pieces of works such as “Furuuki”, “Story of Winds”, “Tang”, “Love Party: Legend of Blue Light”. In particular, the Seoul exhibition will be an opportunity to see what kind of figure will be realized as a miniature model of public art works that will be held in Jeju from Saturday, September 14th.

Namliss Architecture, Random Works, and Kwak Sung-jo participated in ‘Furuu’, which uses the wind of Jeju Island. It draws from wind power generation that makes electricity by the power of wind and visualizes to be able to see the flow of wind by raising net-like structure by wind. The actual work will be installed at the Gimyeong Village Suepo-gu, which is the starting point for the 20-course course in Jeju-do. “The story of the wind” that the consignee, Everywhere and Kim Ho Young participated in reinterprets the wind. The air flow rate is measured and recorded, and the recording of the day is compressed into five minutes, and the music is reconstructed. This ‘luncheon’ is also installed throughout the village of Gimnyeong. Wise Architecture, Park Jin-woo and Yang Hyun-kyeong made water baths called ‘Tang’. We look for Yongcheon water source which is in various places of Gimnyeong and pulls up water by salty tea.

The water sent to the bathtub surrounded by the stone walls gives light effect to the light as if it is received by the lighting installed at the nozzle entrance. Tesoc Hah, Kwon Byung-joon, and Kim Dae-hee pay attention to the folk faith of Jeju Island. He made a modern party called ‘The Party of Love: Legend of Blue Light’. Tourists pamper themselves with a capsule containing bioluminescent microalgae in a pavilion ‘Love Party’ to be installed in the village. When the wind blows, the microscopic algae in the capsule are stimulated to emit light. Love Hall is a biological lighting system of Gimnyeong Village and a tourist product.

ARKO and the Korea Institute of Energy Research signed a business agreement with the aim of fusing arts and technology and implemented it together with the architectural office Tesoc Hah(CEO, SCALe). Especially, we run supporters of college students to experience collaboration process during vacation and to meet people from various fields. However, there were many indications that it was still inadequate to operate and manage it. I hope that the future will become a successful annual event.
