Dawoon Park — Spirit of Kitchen

New Wilderness (Course) — Summer 2021

'Spirit of Kitchen' is the solar energy powered acoustic instrument based on the Korean household deity as conceptual motif, which believes a deity or spirit protects the home, looking after the entire household. In many cases, the object of belief extends from household items, direct family members, ancestors to even all things and beings, thus, nature. Undifferentiated world could be extended everywhere. The solar panel supplies energy to the amplifier and vibrator, resonating the metal products used in the kitchen to produce sound. Humans are shown as part of the circle rather than as operators.
