    Summary

    Introduction of Artist Remine(Kim Hae-min) through the interaction and Audiences experience the author’s world of work firsthand.

    Abstract

    Title of my work is ‘Playing with Remine.’ Playing means playing or interacting with each other.

    There are two reasons why I design this work.

    Currently, I’m designing my website using interactive pictures and videos which visitors can play with them by clicking. Because I unsatisfied with traditional way to communicare with audiences only through the art piece of the artist is one- sided communication.

    If you click my character on the website, you can meet Kim Hae-min(me) sitting in the room. Kim Hae-min doesn’t has any attention to visiotors and doing her own habits. But if visitors matches certain conditions which attracts Kim Hae-min she beings to interreact with visitors. After that text messages pops up and visitors can choice questions to ask they want. Kim Hae-min’s response depends on which question you choose. The response can be kind,ignoring the questions, explain the work, or talk about society. In other words, it is a reactive character with various events.

    Motivation of this project is also my personal experience. I’ve felt that there’s actually not a lot of communication between people, and how can I be honest, comfortable and funny?

    In other way i also plan to expand this work to installation project. The audience passes by and sees Kim Hae-min. The audience enters the installation space and asks questions to the character. And then, if you don’t agree or if you have conflicting values, you move on to the mini-game format. ‘Battle with Remine’ I’m thinking of trying this piece with interactive projection mapping. In the mini-game, I’m going to put various devices to solve the conflicts between me and visitors.
