At the end of 2019, the SEOULIGHT took place with the participation of the world’s top media artists, becoming a representative media facade festival that attracted an audience of about 1 million citizens. This year, the autumn event of the 2020 SEOULIGHT, DDP LIGHT ON, will be displaying media facade works that contain cheerful messages of hope to comfort citizens who are weary from COVID-19 through design art online (for two weeks starting on Oct. 30).
This year, in particular, the audience can watch works that are made based on the participation of citizens. The exterior wall of DDP will become a screen for the video that was created using more than 600 blue colored photos sent in by citizens, as well as for an interactive piece that visualizes citizens’ faces, which can be interpreted differently according to the feelings of the viewers. The media facade works that have been shot in advance will be shared on the DDP website and through various video-sharing platforms.
