SEOUL LIGHT FESTIVAL in DDP(Dongdaemun Design Plaza)

SEOUL LIGHT (DDP Public Light) turns the outer wall of Dongdaemun Design Plaza (DDP) building into a huge exhibition hall with public screens.
Media designer Refik Anadol participates as main writer, and Min Se-hee works as the general director.

We collected photos showing the past of Seoul and Dongdaemun and Seoul photo data taken by citizens.
This is interpreted by AI and machine learning technology, and recombined to express light and image.
Through the voluntary participation of citizens, we plan to capture various stories in the works.
