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.
