[ISEA2012] Artist Talk: Haein Kang – NULL POINT

Artist Statement

‘Null Point’, an architectural scale installation, is connected with scores of thousands of springs. With the connection, it forms large walls like a net-shape. And these walls form a maze by taking open and closed wall. When participants enter the exhibition hall, they pass through this maze. The walls that are connected with springs are blocked spatially, but lie open visually. And the walls are not fixed firmly. The maze is kind of floating. It reacts, moves according to the motion of participants. These movements result from connecting relationships, and the motility of spring adds tension.
