I made a band with selected members with the public open call. Our band composed a song together. This song reflect the interviews with Seoul Citizens about the ‘energy policy shift’ announcement which has established by current administration in Korea and Japn. The final outcome was a documentary video production of the work process, a installation, and a live performance.
The act of playing the guitar itself generates slight electricity. Using energy as a physical phenomenon and a metaphor of the artistʼs desire, I seek the relationship between the link of individual and society, electricity, and art.
