“Artificial Vessel_인공혈관” is a site-specific projection mapping work. In this piece, I use only given conditions as an essential element of the work which is an empty room equipped with the unique lighting structures from the ceiling. By adding the video projection on to the surface, the big white room has switched to a perceptually different space. This virtual transformation exists while the electricity is shut down. By exquisitely mapping the lighting structures and projecting on to them, I created the illusion as if the lamps are making those movements of light. Moreover, I also mapped the stainless steel lampshades. Thus the irregular reflection is created on the six faces of the room.
And, this dual-identity is the point of this project.

In this piece, I am trying to use only given conditions as essential elements of the work. Nothing was added to the empty room, but a projection. However, by adding video projection on to the surface, the big white room, which is a given condition, has switched to a totally different space. This virtual transformation only exists while the electricity to light bulbs is shut down. As soon as the lights go on, the projection disappears even though it is still playing.

Therefore, the light structure itself has become the main element of the work. It seems as if the lights create patterns through voltage control, but the power is actually off. What is really happening is video projection. By exquisitely mapping the lighting structures and projecting on to them, I created the illusion as if lamps are making those movements of light.

Moreover, I also mapped the stainless steel lampshades. Thus irregular reflection is created covering the six faces of the room. Those interlinked reflections of lights appears on and off in various segments following the video projection. Those fluid, and scattering forms of lines strengthen the feeling of virtual expansion of the space, and give an impression that this room has a life of its own. The empty room turns into a virtual, mechanical creature that has artificial vessels that run through its heart.

Walking in this space may confuse people in the first place, but placing themselves in this shift between the illusion and reality will lead them to realize the dual-identity of the digital media.
