Gwacheon Jugong Complex 1, 1981-2017
This project commemorates the demolition of Gwacheon Jugong Complex 1, where a childhood friend, H, and I grew up in. H lived in this complex from his birth until his first son was born. The desktop video "Recalling (Memory Machine)" documents a virtual walk taken using google map into the neighbourhood two years after its demolition was completed. The live satellite view shows the construction zone, while switched to a street view mode, it shows how it used to be. Such experience is purely visual, dry, and technical, while it resonates with memory. I was interested in the tension created when experiencing the technology with such a strong nostalgia and emotional charge.

The video documents a conversation between a family of three, in which they plan their survival in case of an apocalypse. The discussion revolves around an imaginary situation where they were the only human survivors of the situation and later encountered an unknown being. The production of this video has taken place between 2018 and 2019 in Gwacheon, South Korea, and Toronto, Canada. The post-production of this work was finished in Montréal in early 2020.
