"유령기억 (A Ghost Memory)" 은 2018년 IU Bloomington Grunwald Gallery 에 전시한 HTML5 인터랙티브 아트다. “유령 기억”은 GIF 포맷으로 만들어진 수많은 웹페이지로서, 미로처럼 얽힌 나의 기억 속을 방문객이 직접 마우스를 누르며 조종한다. 기억의 미로 속에서 방문객은 아무나 가질 수 있을 법한 주인 없는 기억들을 마주할 수도, 충분히 돌아다니며 깊이 숨겨놓은 나의 내면과 뒤섞여가는 초현실적 기억을 마주하게 될 수도 있다.
A memory can be anything that one remembers, based on experiences or feelings. It could be vivid as daylight, or extremely ambiguous and confusing. Sometimes a cherished memory could stay deep inside of one's heart. Though what each person would cherish in their deep-down memory is all different, I believe everybody has a private place in the deepest mind. To express this, I have created a space in the form of HTML5 pages. These pages can be infinite in terms of numbers.
A Ghost Memory is an Interactive Installation piece about my personal memories and dreams, where viewers can go through my ‘maze-like’ head. Just like when meeting a new person, I only show the viewers the shallow depth of my ordinary memories at first.
Only when the viewers interact and spend more time with the piece, they are allowed to see my deeper and distorted memories, jumbled with my hopes, dreams, and love. As the viewers continue to click on, they fall deeper and deeper into the layers of memories, until they reach my deepest and cherished place.
