Last day in Korea

September 3rd, 2010

Snif ! _ It’s my last day here, at the INDAF festival. I had great time with all the people who worked hard to let this event exist. Not enought Staff, but very very comprehensive and kindly. So, my last day begin with a old Korean tradition. People ( usually women ) prepare a paste taking from the powder of flower ( I do not remember the name ). It produce a very bright orange humid substance. They envelop the tips of their fingers with this substance for 4 or 5 hours. After remove and clean this substance … the fingertips and nails are stained with the bright orange for more than three months. If the color persists until the first snow, well, their wishes will happen. Sun ask to me, to try it on one of my finger . . . so, I will keep with this orange finger for the next 3 months, hoping that my wishes happen . . . hi !

The final result _ Orange lucky finger !!!

After, because I had the day off, I asked Gia to bring me to an industrial district. So, I took time to shoot lots of beautifull video for my next project. We went after to Seoul at an old water treatement usine that was converted in a beautifull parc with lots of Nenuphars

And everything finish in beauty with friends at a very good korean restaurant.

Santé !!! Seungho Hong[flv][/flv]

Korea arrival

August 23rd, 2010

Après 24 heures d’avion en passant par Paris, j’arrive enfin à Seoul. Déjà la langue, la musique de la langue est très différente de celle de la chine. Ça me semble beaucoup plus doux et harmonieux à l’oreille. Je pense juste à me retrouver à l’horizontal . . . sleeping sleeping. en attendant quelques images. All this city ::: city of tommorow ::: was contruct in the last 15 months. . . hum ! In Montreal, it’s take 3 years to contruct one building like this.

San Francisco by the beach

December 28th, 2009

At the last minute _ Eva and I found flight tickets really cheap for San Francisco _ is just that it has decided us to go to that destination _ just to take good time before starting 2010.
At this time of the year, sea lions must immigrate soon here at Pier 39 _ we’re excited and we’re going to the docks every day. Until their arrivals, we take long walks in the city and near the sea _ and we rent Go-Car to go under the golden bridge.

He starting to open few frames to find the good one. I admit _ he was right . . .

J’ai donc présenté hier INJECT V.02 aux Brigittimes à Bruxelles dans le cadre de Cimatics2009. Les Brigittimes se définit Centre d’art du mouvement et de la voix. Architecturalement, c’est un lieu assez unique. L’ancienne Chapelle des Brigittines – église baroque du XVIIè siècle – jusqu’il y a peu, lieu principal d’activité et de représentations, est aujourd’hui dotée d’une extension, une jumelle, Chapelle contemporaine, inaugurée les 20 et 21 août 2007. L’année 2008 verra également l’achèvement des travaux de construction d’un bâtiment voisin qui comprendra 6 ateliers/logements pour artistes ainsi que d’un jardin artistique et pédagogique, tous deux, aussi gérés par Les Brigittines. Malgré sa hauteur, l’acoustique de la chapelle est assez surprenante. C’est probablement dû à son plafond construit en pièces de bois.

Cimatics m’a fourni des techniciens audio et vidéo passinnés et hyper professionnels, nous avons ensemble pris le temps ( grand luxe ) de bien sculter l’espace en quadraphonie.
