[Apr. 29] Seven Futures by Taeyoon Choi and Christine Sun Kim

Harvestworks in partnership with the SoHo Arts Network Spring Open House will present Seven Futures by Taeyoon Choi and Christine Sun Kim. For this installation, the artists came up with seven potential futures and gave form to them as wind chimes with electronics and motors.  As each wind chime creates sound in various speeds, they will gradually become one collective and intersectional future, in both controlled and abstract senses.  For this installation, Taeyoon Choi will install the wind chimes and drawings. 

In the traditional sense of time, a bell-ringer notifies the hour of the day and notifies people to attend religious or public services. In a different sense of time, the wind chimes make the passing of time noticeable. It renders time as abstract rather than a series of numeric marks.
However, contemporary time is now controlled by Network Time Protocol (in other words, the Internet time) which synchronize the clocks of computers and phones around the world. This time is the new territory that constructs our sense of place. The concept of Future has become the perpetual Present.
