The Wind
Apr. 2006

A cloth waving in the present wind of Haeundae.

A microphone was installed at the rooftop of The Westin Chosun Busan, a hotel in Haeundae Beach. The microphone was connected to a PC to transmit the sound of the place through the Internet. Another computer in a gallery waved a cloth in a virtual space according to the intensity of the transmitted wind.

Audiences can hear the sound of Haeundae Beach of the moment from the speakers: the sounds of winds, waves, excited visitors, rain, saxophone playing, chirping birds... One exhibition day, the curator told me “a helicopter flew over the microphone this morning!”
