Artist Statement:


    The Korean term ‘Inyeon’ expresses the spontaneous force that exists between people, a force which brings us together and creates a trail of interactions throughout our lives. The Trans-Emotion Room is the first work in a series titled Inyeon. Central to these works is the occupation of one of the most personal spaces we inhabit, a space that carries us across landscapes, a space that we mold with each step: our shoes. In The Trans-Emotion Room, participants are asked to share a small room in a pair of shoes provided. The shoes act as an interface, monitoring the body for variations in body temperature that occur when personal space is thus shared, and the room responds to this connection by subtly altering the colour spectrum of the light surrounding the participants.
