A new piece by Jin-Yo Mok, SoniColumn, is currently exhibiting at Bitforms Korea. The installation is very impressive, and if you, like me, won't be able to see it in person in Seoul, then visit the website and watch the videos. I am one of those lucky souls to have seen Jin-Yo's earlier work and his process (we went to school together), and I can tell you that he does his art with love, care, and utmost focus. It's truely inspirational.
Description: SoniColumn is an interactive sound installation that can be played by a person’s touch. The installation takes the form of a column-like cylinder, of a height that does not quite reach the ceiling but just high enough for one’s reach. Grids of LEDs installed inside the column light themselves on by the users’ touch and emit unique sounds. When a user cranks the handle, the column slowly rotates itself and plays the light patterns of the user’s touch.
