This is a media installation born from a combination of modern technologies. The time axes of movement are connected through three dimensions and given form through 3D printing. Through the application of light, the transitory movements of time are visualized. This installation will show in a new light that movement, to begin with, is realized through its relationship with time, and that time continues on incessantly, through the past, present and future.
I've output the 3DCG data in high-definition 3D printers. The turntable was used to cut out the wood with a laser cutter.
This project focuses on a basic idea - man and his movement. It is the most universal and even primitive of things, but the project beautifully reinterprets this theme through its many layers of representation. The idea is given new life through the creative use of fabrication technologies. The design of the project guides us by leaving physical traces in the shape of the artwork. The form of the overall object is architectural - it creates its own environment that is further animated by light and shadow. The result possesses a hypnotic quality - perhaps similar to when you experience Eadweard Muybridge's photographic studies or Michael Snow's "Walking Woman" for the first time. It is both as simple reflection of the experience in our daily lives but also symbolic of meaning as an art and cultural artifact.
