This project commemorates the demolition of Gwacheon Jugong Complex 1, where myself and a childhood friend H, grew up in. H had lived in this complex from his birth up until his first son was born. The desktop video "Recalling (Memory Machine)" documents a virtual walk taken using google map into the neighbourhood, two years after its demolition was completed. The satellite live view shows the construction zone, while switched to a street view mode, it shows how it used to be. Such experience is purely visual, dry, and technical, while it resonates with memory. I was interested in the tension that is created when experiencing the technology with such a strong nostalgia and emotional charge.
