Living Light Sculpture Maps Seoul’s Air Quality, World Cup Stadium’s Peace Park, 2009

 

Designed by Soo-in Yang and David Benjamin of The Living, Living Light’s glass skin is actually a massive redrawn map of 27 Seoul neighborhoods. Every 15 minutes, neighborhoods light up in order of best air quality to worst based on real-time sensors from the Korean Ministry of Environment. And each night, neighborhoods are illuminated if air quality is better on that particular day than the same time last year. Seoul citizens can also text the installation and expect a response (presumably detailing air quality in certain neighborhoods).

Yang Soo-in: Yobosayo

An interactive sculpture called Yobosayo (Korean word used to call someone’s attention, like ‘hello’), a large, ear-shaped sculpture that records the opinions of passersby and relays it over speakers installed in the newly opened Seoul City Hall. The 8 feet tall sculpture has an installed microphone inside that records the messages and each message is then relayed through speakers located around the City Hall. Sensors on the suspended speakers detect how many officials have heard the messages and the amount of time people have spent in listening to the message. While the ones that attract the most attention stay in the playlist, the unpopular ones are transformed into music by an algorithm that amplifies and distorts their auditory characteristics.
