Oil Tank Culture Park, Seoul, SOUTH KOREA, May 2018 ~ PARTICIPATORY ART.
The Word Tree is a participatory artwork that features public participation and a co-designed sculpture. The public use printed maps and social media to find small sculptural pieces that are hidden around the exhibition area. They bring these pieces to the exhibition space and connect them to The Word Tree sculpture. The Word Tree is constructed from coloured, laser cut acrylic. Each sculptural piece spells a Hungal (Korean) word – ie the sculpture features words such as ‘ART’ and ‘TECHNOLOGY’.
The Word Tree socially and physically engages audiences and personalises their experience of art.
