dorkbot-nyc, 02 September 2009 -- Hye Yeon Nam: The Sound of Kiss

Hye Yeon Nam: The Sound of Kiss The Sound of Kiss facilitates an amorous ambience in which couples digitize their love while kissing. One wears a headset and the other's tongue is affixed to a magnet. When they kiss, the magnet and the electro-magnetic sensor interact to create spontaneous music. The musical composition depends on how far one's tongue is away from the other's lips/tongue and their style of action. http://www.hynam.org/HY/sou.html filmed and edited by Content Content (greg dorsainville & joe frey) Filmed @ Location1.org April 1st, 2009 More info: http://dorkbot.org

Please Smile

“Please smile” is an exhibit involving five robotic skeleton arms that change their gestures depending on a viewer’s facial expressions. Audiences interact with “Please smile” in three different ways. 
When no human falls within the view of the camera, the five robotic skeleton arms choose the default position, which is bending their elbows and wrists near the wall. When a human steps within the view of the camera, the arms point at the human and follow his/her movements. Then when someone smiles in front of it, the five arms wave their hands. Through artwork such as “Please smile,” I would like to foster positive audience behaviors.

Kiss Controller

Abstract Kiss Controller is a game input device that controls the direction and speed of a bowling ball while users are kissing. Introduction Recently, with the improvement of camera capabilities and related tracking systems, game input systems such as Nintendo Wii controllers or Microsoft Kinect games are incorporating more body positions and movements. Kiss Controller is an experimental project that allows users to control a bowling game by moving their tongues while kissing. Unlike existing game input devices, Kiss Controller seeks to generate the emotional experience of a kinetic act while users play the game rather than control games with their body. Project Description The Kiss Controller interface has two components: a customized headset that functions as a sensor receiver and a magnet that provides sensor input. The user affixes a magnet to his/ her tongue with Fixodent. Magnetic field sensors are attached to the end of the headset and positioned in front of the mouth. As the user moves her tongue, this creates varying magnetic fields that are used to control games. We demonstrate the Kiss Controller bowling game. One person has a magnet on his/her tongue and the other person wears the headset. While they kiss, the person who has the magnet on his/her tongue, controls the direction and speed of the bowling ball for 20 seconds. The goals of this game are to guide the ball so that it maintains an average position in the center of the alley and to increase the speed of the ball by moving the tongue faster while kissing. Conclusion Kissing is an intimate behavior that can be developed into a game device. It has not yet been proposed in the game industry. Kiss Controller shows how the human tongue can be used to control a game and how people can become creatively involved in a game. Collaboration Hye Yeon Nam and Sam Mendenhall

Tongue Music v.1

The Tongue Music system is an experimental instrument using the tongue, rather than the hand, to generate sounds. There is one person performing in front of projector, which displays an abstract video image consisting of hundreds of dots. The performer controls the mouse with his tongue to simultaneously manipulate the video images (the color and size of dots are changed along with music), the piano sound, as well as the presence or absence of a beat.

Invisible

Invisible uses a computational system to evoke understanding and a discussion of current racial stereotype issues. It explores the political implications of how freely racial discrimination is expressed on online platforms, where these discriminations can easily be hidden. At the same time, it is not limited to representing discrimination, but also revealing a lack of conversation. Invisible prints sentences that include any derogatory racial term representing discrimination of African Americans, Asians, Hispanics and Caucasians on papers in every 10 seconds. After the sentences are printed, the robotic arm cuts and throws the papers away on the ground. Amongst the piles of hurtful messages, one can find examples that seek to educate the readers to the injured feelings and sensitivities of the races. The most important purpose of Invisible is to raise discussions, and not for audiences to remain in frustration.

Hooray

In the small room, Hooray, an interactive installation, is installed on the wall. There is one bright light source in the middle of the room to make participants’ shadows for interacting with Hooray. In Hooray, 208 human figures in double rows are initially standing up. When participants approach Hooray, the figures individually bow. To accomplish this effect, when the participants’ shadows block light sensors, motors are activated that cause the figures to bow. Hooray represents a hierarchical (power) relationship in society. When participants get closer to Hooray, their shadows seem like overwhelming small-scaled human figures. Small-scaled human figures bow showing their obedience to the participants. I think our society’s so called democracy is not really a democracy. An individual’s money, power, and reputation are still organized in a hierarchy. We do not live any more in a society, which is set up as a relationship of servant and master, such as a caste or a slavery system. However, the current system is sometimes subtly misguiding people through mass media, policy, or laws because they opt to represent people who have power and influence. My greatest hope is for my audience to become aware of society’s issues while they appreciate and enjoy the artwork.

Hooray at Telfair Museum

Solo Show Title: Unfamiliar Behavior by Hye Yeon Nam Work Title: Hooray (interactive installation and video) Location: Telfair Museum, Savannah, GA Jan 30 - April 28, 2013 In the Telfair Museum, Hooray is installed on the wall with a video. There are two bright light sources to make participants’ shadows for interacting with Hooray. In Hooray, 208 human figures in double rows are initially standing up. When participants approach Hooray, the figures individually bow. To accomplish this effect, when the participants’ shadows block light sensors, motors are activated that cause the figures to bow. In my video, I bow and try to keep smiling for 10 minutes while gradually getting tired of bowing. Hooray represents a hierarchical power relationship in society. When participants get closer to Hooray, their shadows seem like overwhelming small-scaled human figures. Small-scaled human figures bow showing their obedience to the participants. I think our society’s so called democracy is not really a democracy. An individual’s money, power, and reputation are still organized in a hierarchy. We do not live any more in a society, which is set up as a relationship of servant and master, such as a caste or a slavery system. However, the current system is sometimes subtly misguiding people through mass media, policy, or laws because they opt to represent people who have power and influence. At the same time, in my video, an Asian Woman bows and keeps smiling for 10 minutes. The video specifically represents Asian culture, which expects woman to be sweet and be submissive. Hooray represents a general concept of a hierarchical society with the video showing a specific example of Asian culture as two works in a set. I would like to see the audiences’ reactions that occur when they encounter hierarchies of different societies and cultures. I assume that they may feel uncomfortable, curious, or indifferent. My greatest hope is for my audience to become aware of our society’s issues and have a chance to think about it while they appreciate and enjoy the artwork.

OUIJA! in collaboration with Sean Griffin

Excerpts from theater project with Sean Griffin and Yohangza Theater Company, Seoul 2010. Costumes, and scenic objects come from Yohangza's production of Peer Gynt. Sean Griffin, composer and co-director Adapted from Yohangza Theater Company’s 2009 production of Ibsen’s Peer Gynt directed by Jung-ung Yang Ensemble Jung Yong Jeon Jin Gon Kim Gwang Won Do Sin Woo Lee Woo Geun Jeong Sang Bo Kim Seok Hyeong Mun Eun Jung Lee Seung Hye Nam Soo Yeon Jeong Ji Yeon Kim Costumes Myung A Lee * additional production credits are missing for crew and music ensemble This is a continuous excerpt from a performance that works with theater as a found object or readymade. During a three-week residency Sean Griffin and I worked with scenic elements, props and costumes from Yohangza’s 2009 production of Ibsen's Peer Gynt, and with eleven actors who had been part of that original production. The company's director, Jung-ung Yang allowed us to work from documentation of his production and gave us access to as many of its elements as possible. Material from the original production was subject to new interpretive treatments and orchestrated into an alternate performative dimension, a strange afterimage of the original production. The ensemble improvised around fragments from the play developing a series of attitudes, gestures and movements that could be mapped onto Sean Griffin’s musical scores. The fragmenting consciousness of Ibsen's main character Peer Gynt was futher refracted through multiple performers and our reanimation of Yohangza's Korean adaptation. Ideally the project would have continued to migrate, the Yohangza actors and Ouija! incorporating the work of another found production and new ensemble. This sample is conceptually relevant to my proposed project because of its investment in episodic forms and my excitement for work that can interpolate different perspectives through a shared framework of elements. This is a continuous excerpt, edited in a way I feel is analogous to how we experience live work given that we can process action up close and faraway simultaneously.
