2012 Yeosu EXPO HYUNDAI MOTOR GROUP - Hyper-Matrix

Hyper-Matrix is a kinetic landscape installation created for the Hyundai Motor Group Exhibition Pavilion in Korea, the 2012 Yeosu EXPO site. The installation consists of a specially made huge steel construction to support thousands of stepper motors that control 320x320mm cubes that project out of the internal facade of the building.



The foam cubes are mounted to actuators that move them forward and back by the steppers, creating patterns across the three-sided display. Comprised of what at first appear to be three blank white walls, Hyper-Matrix installation quickly comes to life as thousands of individual cubic units forming a field of pixels begin to move, pulsate, and form dynamic images across the room, creating infinite number of possibilities in the vertical, 180 degree, landscape. In addition, as the boxes are arranged at only 5mm narrow intervals, the wall can also be a nice moving screen for the images projected on to it.

May 12 ~ Aug 12, 2012



Jonpasang, a Seoul based media arts group, created this installation titled “Hyper-Matrix” for the Hyundai Motor Group Exhibition Pavilion in Korea, the 2012 Yeosu EXPO site.

The installation comprises a specially made steel construction to support thousands of stepper motors that control 300x300mm Lightweight blocks to move in and out of the facade, creating infiniti number of possibilities in the vertical, 180 degree, landscape.

The audience also took part in the installation as thousands of cubes start moving by the audience’s sounds. Pixel waves sweep the space, ripples emit from the centre and just in case this is not enough, projection mapping takes care of the rest.
Jonpasang collective includes Jin-Yo Mok, Sookyun Yang, Earl Park, Jin-Wook Yeo and Sang-Wook Yu.

This hypothetical device informs your quantum state within innumerable versions of our universe in the quantum state of the universe. The main idea is inspired by an equation, the measurement of existence from the relative quantum mechanics created by physicist, Everett who invented Many-World theory.

Quantum state of the universe:
| Ψ UNIVERSE 〉 = ∑αi | Ψ WORLD i 〉
Measurement of the existence:
μi ≡ 〈 Ψ UNIVERSE | Pi | Ψ UNIVERSE 〉

The theory explains that there are many worlds existing in parallel in the Universe. Although all worlds are of the same physical size (this might not be true if we take quantum gravity into account), and in every world sentient beings feel as "real" as in any other world, in some sense some worlds are larger than others. I describe this property as the measure of existence of a world. "I" also have a measure of existence. It is the sum of measures of existence of all different worlds in which I exist; equally, it can be defined as the measure of existence of my perception world. Note that I do not experience directly the measure of my existence. In the system of the parallel universe, I feel the same weight, see the same brightness, etc. irrespectively of how tiny my measure of existence might be.

The measurement of Existence is an interactive installation that incorporates both an animated graphic and sound. The device shows the simultaneity of innumerable state of a single electron forms the probability wave. As a viewer get closer and observe the ambiguous state of the electron, the device is triggered to show the next stage of the visual information of the viewer’s existence within the system of the parallel universe. In the theories of quantum physics, the acts of observation and measurement play a critical role in creating our physical reality. When it is activated by the power of observation, it examines the sensory mechanism of measurement from the viewer, such as cognition and sight. Then, it visualizes a parallel state of the viewer’s universe, from clustered groups of galaxy to the solar system the earth inhabits.

Tens of thousands of people are conceived every year using donated sperm. A single sperm donor can anonymously father multiple children, so there's a risk of ‘accidental incest’, where sexual relationships develop between half-siblings who are unaware they’re related. My work explores the role that genetic technology will play in romantic relationships in the near future - for example in the avoidance of accidental incest. I aim to examine how new biotechnologies, and the companies that develop them, might lead to new types of relationships between friends, families and lovers.



'Accidental Incest' show and question the scenario which focus the case of a world where many more people are born using sperm or egg donors and accidental incest in the near future. What if the technology allows us to eliminate danger that a resulting baby could get genetic disease, sibling marriage becomes acceptable in social and cultural context? or not?



The portable devices are designed to capture and analyse the genetic contents of both sexes and allow transfer of their respective DNA sequences into the main device. Through genetic engineering, the main device re-programs both the man and women's gene to become free of a genetic disease. As soon as the main device receives their genetic information, bio-chemical sampling assays using nanotechnology allows creation of the new gene by spreading their body cells and letting them grow on the surface of a gold pendant.



After two weeks of cleansing, the gold pendant containing the new gene may be applied to pregnant women in the form of bio-patch delivery system. The new gene then is permeated slowly into the baby via this delivery system.
