Art Gallery in Tae-Back
The temporary installation art is a re-styling of the façade a gallery in the old town of Tae-back in Gangwon-do, south Korea.
What if the materials with which we surround ourselves asked us to be more conscientious about how we use them?
The project is about providing a new perspective on the everyday.
As a flexible architectural element rather than a fixed element, be wall consists of 2,000 structural egg trays. This surface maximizes the separation between the old and new surface, day and night beyond the space show through.
The passage of time is more actively sensed from both inside and outside, as these light effects stimulate our senses.
The egg trays, relatively standard commercially-so ld products, were manufactured by a Korean factory from high-density polyethylene (HDPE). For this project, the Egg trays were UV coated to ensure durability throughout the installation.
and we intend to reuse the individual baskets upon dismantling the installation.
The project is not about the “right” or “wrong” ways of using objects, but rather about highlighting their affordances or meanings.
This simple, lightweight construction is a steel subframe to the existing building facade and connected individual egg trayss to this frame using steel cable ties.
we say the intent was to create an economical, flexible, light, and recyclable flexible element.
