[ISEA2014] Artists Statement: Jiayi Young & Shih-Wen Young — Message in the Sky

Artists Statement

Message in the Sky, taking shape as a site-specific/crowd-responsive installation, pools together the city’s modern-day 1001 dreams, and casts them away into the celestial using a radio telescope. The installation invites local public to bring in their favorite fragrances and spray on hand-gold-leafed paper cards. In exchange, they are given unique codes which enable them the privilege of casting their hopes and dreams as messages to the stars.
Curator: Kóan Jeff Baysa
