Shinseungback Kimyonghun (SHIN Seung Back / KIM Yong Hun) [South Korea]


A stone on a shore of the volcanic island, Ulleungdo. Water sensors are installed on the stone surface, and wave data is collected. At the exhibition venue, the video of the wave breaking on the stone is played on the screen. The wooden structure placed next to it has 64 solenoids which tap on the specific parts of the structure to recreate the sound and vibration of the wave. One can get into the structure and become a stone.
