Topic: Presentation of 'Sharable City' project and idea drawing and discussion related to this project and social issues
1. Urban Terrain Lab- SeoulReCycle
Urban Terrain Lab presents a solution for Gwanak-gu Gosichon’s local problems such as lack of recycling, negligence of thrown-out trash, economic independence of low-income elders, lack of leisure facility, and etc. The team wishes to solve these problems through informal infrastructural support based on distinct characteristics of the area, and the cyclization of social capital. ‘SeoulReCycle’ is comprised of recycling Hubs, mobile stations, and handcarts. By connecting these components with the sharing economy based on local community, the team wishes to provide the possibility of sustainable “Sharable City”.
Involved Artists: Yehre Suh, Hae In Chae, Kyung Sun Park, Ara Song, Bumtaek Im, Sang Hyun Kang, Kay Choi
2. Sinpa City(PaTI) - Dorimcheon Wave
PaTI (Paju Typography Institute) which provides creative education through an original structure presents a participatory social game for local single-households as a new sharing structure using Dorimcheon’s waterfront area as a platform in Gwanak-gu Gosichon. “Dorimcheon Wave” provides an opportunity to participate in a society through a social game for those wishing to spend leisure time alone using a web platform that links the waterfront area to on/offline. It also aims to form a basis of participatory “Sharable City.”
Involved Artists: Jaeok Lee, Gowoon Lim, Jung Eum Lee, Jina Kim, Tae Yeon Lee, Jihee Ahn
3. City Profiler (Urban hybrid) – Single Household Seoul Profiling
City Profiler (Urban hybrid) wishes to set a structure for city data collection and analysis, and experiment the potential possibility of data based analyzing skills in a hyper-connected society through this project. “Profiling of single-households in Seoul” shows city data that can estimate single-households’ economic activity and residential environment, and is a reinterpretation of these data through social scientific analysis and insights. The work is constructed upon three themes, “urban 1conomy,” “city of studios,” and “Sillim-dong Gosichon,” profiling single-households in Seoul, and visualizes collected data.
Involved Artists: Sangwook Lee, Kooyoung Han
4. SNU. IGSR - Air play
Seoul National University’s Institute for Global Social Responsibility (SNU. IGSR) is a Social Lab that constructs social contribution models through various activities with resources within and outside of the school. The team focuses on practicality, connection, and blending of social contribution and knowledgeable resources. For this exhibition, the team designed a smoking booth that can be installed in small areas. This idea was derived from the street smoking problem, one of many problems in Gwanak-gu’s Gosichon area. Through this technologically structured urban facility that ensures the coexistence of smokers and non-smokers, the work allows people to imagine the possibility of future city infrastructure enabling the sharing and symbiosis of non-homogeneous groups in public space.
Involved Artists: Yumi Lee, Su Young Choi, Ren Yiwei, So Hui Shim, Chae Eun Shim, Yeujung Choi, Gwang Eon Lee, Sangyoon Bae, Daeho Jeong
5. Zero Boundary – Merged Individuals
Zero Boundary presents an alternative space that can solve emotional problems of Gosichon students. They spend more than half of the day sitting at the desk which can lead to emotional discomfort such as sense of isolation, loneliness, and even feelings of imprisonment. “Merged Individuals” is a pavilion where people can communicate without an encounter. Using lights and sound, Gosichon locals who may be overwhelmed of socializing can experience connection and form social consensuses through indirect contact.
Involved Artists: Jae Hyeong Yoo, Arai Rika, Young Soo Bae, Joo Hong Park, Jun Won Lee, Tae Hyung Kim
6. SeoJin Ceci Kim, Sangcheon Kang - White Dwarf
After traveling millions of years, a slowly phasing star, White Dwarf, has to make a decision of either being permanently extinct or becoming a supernova. Seojin Ceci Kim, Sangcheon Kang connected the difficulties of youths who are facing social barriers like examination and employment, and the fate of White Dwarf using a sensual VR video. Through this art work, two artists wish to deliver emotional sympathy to anxious and cornered youths struggling with the tough reality, and the future where hope awaits instead of the extinction.
