The Third Memory Dog Day Afternoon
For four months, Jung oversaw art classes in four kindergartens in Seoul and collected 1,200 drawings by children between the ages of five and seven. After pouring through them, he carefully selected 17 drawings and interpreted their meanings. Then he recruited 60 high school students by passing out handbills at their schools in which he invited them to act out the scenarios in the children’s drawings. In order to recreate faithfully drawing details such as dresses with uneven sleeves or buttons of different sizes, he convinced five fashion designers to custom make the clothing for the photo shoot. He also made props unlike any scale found in reality but similar to those in the drawings.
Temporary use can provide activity and interest for sites that are not ripe for redevelopment. It can also catalyze the “creative economy” by providing short-term space for entrepreneurial start-up businesses and laboratories for art, culture, environmental efforts, and civic society.
A Cabin in a Loft is a one-room bed & breakfast in the vibrant
artists’ neighborhood of Bushwick, Brooklyn. It is envisioned as an
alternative to hotels and hostels and is available for short-term rental
and private events. The Cabin is run out of my workshop and studio,
where I also live. By staying here, you are supporting my work as an
artist, architect, and designer.
