2014- Social Kinetic Art

currently making

When we are deep into information, our conscious is going far away from our body. Information window such as smart phone, tablet, computer display and TV will become a gate where our ghosts are taking journey.

The GHOSTHOUSE is a lamp consisted of many doors, where the ghosts all over the world gather. If people participate in this project, they can get a special app in order to send the status of use of smart phones and computers automatically. If a person starts to use it and connects to the network, one of the door will be opened on the lamp to accept the ghost in real-time. We will see the dynamic moves of ghosts through this lamp.

The GHOSTHOUSE provokes a fundamental question of “what is our body and soul?”, in the 21st century. And the interactions by the ghosts create a sublime moment that people sense the invisible.
