I.will.seoul.you (2016)




Modeling after the highly compressed images caught at the shore of Google, the project ‘I.will.seoul.you’ will critically embody

a. Korean tourism industry combined with SNS platform/search engine, which seems to have symptoms of turning into extremely fluid consumerism,
b. the gaze of Korean administrators towards it,
c. the sense/concept or placeness of Seoul Special City.



The main part of ‘I.will.seoul.you’ is ‘iwillseoulyou.kr’ which is a website outsourced by virtual administrator, ‘the Department of Aborted Future, Seoul the Special City’. The form of this site is modeled after the ‘timeline’ of SNS , which is analogy to ‘the wave raised by collective sense of Web’. It is filled with highly-compressed .jpg or .png files of the scenery of each district in Seoul, and short sarcastic comments.
