Award Reason

This installation enables us to sensuously explore the "Earth" with a self-created interface. As we freely shift the object with our palms between horizontal and vertical spaces, it will take us even to the other side of the earth. This work was created with a "question for a feeling of reality" asked by the artist who finds no coincidence between "the round earth" known to everyone and "the earth under one's feet". The accelerating levels of interaction and body sensation can be experienced with "a feeling of reality" in this work.
