Daegu Art Factory's current exhibit, Better Than Universe, focuses on future-oriented art. I was able to check it out yesterday during a couple of free hours before work and I am planning to go back again. Guys, you gotta go.
This exhibition is chock full of talented artists who are truly pioneers in using new technologies as modes of artistic expression.
The whole exhibit is philosophical, technical, emotional, and surprising. A large number of the installations are interactive such as Kim Heesung's voyaristic look through the uniform apartment windows of Korea. A personal favorite of mine is Hyunwoo Bang and Yoonsil Heo's (an artistic team who calls themselves 'everyware') technologically impressive piece, LEVITATE. I still don't fully understand how it works and I like it that way.
Yeondoo Jung's (we just can't get enough of him, can we?) Handmade Memories video installation is perfectly placed in the exhibit and is something you will want to watch from start to finish.
There are too many great pieces to mention, and I don't want to ruin all of the great surprises. It's FREE and it ends on December 15th, so get to Daegu Art Factory this weekend to ponder the universe.
