A DRIFT IN A LEAKY METAPHOR
“A drift in a leaky metaphor” is a site-specific installation based in the national park of Suncheon, South Korea.
This installation aims to create three dimensional drawing based on two contrasting subjects, the “structure” of nature and the construction of urban environments. The installation is the result of a journey on foot. The act of walking becomes a meditation within space seeking for new forms.Using materials such as metal, aluminum rods, threads and wires, the installation represent a multi surface drawing in which the lines (pencil has been replaced by metal rods, threads and wires) exist in the real space and allows the viewer to walk through and see the drawing from different and various angles.
The installation is assembled with different individual pieces made by metal rods with specific shapes (mainly abstract) that are based on a specific journey. The journey is focusing on the visual and the environmental site of the space. As a result, all these pieces are connected and form a new image, a new utopic landscape giving and compressing the entire journey in 5 x 3 x5 meters.
