The Leeum List

At Seoul’s Leeum Samsung Museum of Art, I was struck by two things:

1. 89 Seconds at Alcazar by Eve Sussman / Rufus Corporation

One of my favorite paintings is Diego Velasquez’s Las Meninas. This film, shown in the excellent exhibition, Mise-en-Scène, imagines the events before and after the painting, depicting the actual moment as a fleeting one. And hey, GoT fans, Peter Dinklage is part of the cast!

2. Interaction Design and Korean Treasures

In the exhibition Opulence: Treasures of Korean Craft, I was impressed at how the audience can view the art. In addition to seeing the actual relic, it was possible to explore the piece through a high resolution photo of the work, and a touch screen that allows you to zoom into different details.
