MUTO

MUTO symbolizes ‘vast plains’:
A side project consisting of Graphic artist Park Hunkyu (Viewzic), Geomungo player Park Woojae, Music producer Sin Bumho (Idiotape), and Graphic designer Hong Chanhyuk.

MUTO emerges from musing over two fundamental elements in modern performing arts: Originality and Contemporaneity. By Integrating sounds of East & West, and Amplifying artistic interpretation through manipulating Media Art and Light Art forms, MUTO aims to materialize an entirely new territory of performing arts on the basis of Korean traditional music.

Kasia Molga

‘Human Sensor’ by artist Kasia Molga, is a large scale, futuristic narrative in a form of wearable tech costumes and performance artwork. It explores how human body, especially that which is more sensitive to changes in the air, reacts to daily exposure to air pollution, and how it can be “utilized” as a sensor informing other city dwellers about the air conditions.

Wired up to a series of breathing and air pollution data sensors, the costumes are activated by the breath of a wearer – in case of the performance – a dancer. Illuminations are in a real-time responsive to pollution levels – the fluctuation in pollution influences the colours and configurations of light on the wearable, which fades in and out with dancer’s inhalations and exhalations. The surrounding sound of performers breathing further draw attention to the changes in the bodily conditions affected by the condition of the environment. ‘Human Sensor’ premiered in July 2016, during the Manchester International Science Festival, a commission by Invisible Dust and Manchester, European City of Science. ‘Human Sensor LDN’ was performed in London, in June 2018, commissioned and produced by Invisible Dust in partnership with Euston Town BID as part of ‘Under Her Eye’ and Studio Molga. In Korea, Human Sensor is made possible with the support of the European Union’s Horizon 2020 programme in the framework of STARTS initiative (Science, Technology & the Arts).
