Bogaji is a unique form of Korean textile art. It is a traditional wrapping cloth made by patching together scraps and turning them into useful wrappers.
The S Bojagi is a personal interpretation of this Korean tradition.
Through the use of sensor technology and flexible circuitry techniques the Sonic Bojagi triggers transform and (re)creates the sonic landscape of Seoul, the capital of Korea.
I spend one-month collecting sounds from many different places in Seoul, from traditional dance presentations to street pop culture.
Those sounds are triggered and mixed depending on how the S Bojagi is manipulated.
This piece is presented as a performance where the Bogaji is used to wrap different objects.
Each object is wrapped using a different technique which creates a unique sonic experience.
