Video with word "TRAVELING" projected on a building


Heavy Industries (Korea)

NEoN Festival is thrilled to present, for one night only, a projection of Traveling to Utopia: With a Brief History of the Technology (2006) by Seoul based artist group Young-Hae Chang Heavy Industries. The work (3 mins 50s, looped) will be shown on the side wall of Groucho’s and be visible from the pavement outside Folk Cafe.

Travelling to Utopia is a kind of sci-fi parable about technology and growing up in an age of digital transformation. Come reflect on your own techno-coming of age with us.

YHCHI create work that synchronizes original text and music soundtracks, combining storytelling with animation. Their work, created and shown in over 26 languages and released online using flash since the early days of the web (1999), has been shown around the world at some of the major art institutions in the world, including Tate, London, Centre Pompidou, Paris, Whitney Museum and New Museum, New York. Young-Hae Chang (Korea) and Marc Voge (United States), the two principals of YHCHI, were recent Rockefeller Foundation Bellagio Center Creative Arts Fellows.
