Hyundai Motor Chung Mong-koo Foundation X K-Arts_Art Village Project

The art village project aims to revive unpopular villages together with artists and villagers through artistic events. Hyundai Motor Chung Mong-Koo Foundation and K-Arts, after year-long research, installed interactive display to share the current stage of the project with the audience.

The Art Village Project is industry-university cooperation between Hyundai Motors and K-Arts.

This interactive display aims to share the current events and results of art projects in remote villages. The challenge was not only showing the results as a video or images but also, delivering the atmosphere of remote events that happened in selected villages.

Selecting menu with hand gesture

Users can control the interface with hand gestures. The surface of the table was made using small cube modules. This allows the screen to be formed on different types of curved surfaces according to the UI and contents, thus allowing a more intuitive approach to data, contour lines of the map, and mood of various contents using the movement of the modules. The table was installed in the center of Myeong-dong, Seoul, which is one of the most attractive, populated areas in Korea.

Cube modules change its' height depending on each screen and information
