Sang Hoon Youm and Yoo Jung Lee installed in front of the Seoul Station a group of rotating pavilions which reconfigures the ever-changing relationship between people, art, time and the city.
Dancing Forest is a group of rotating pavilions which reconfigures the ever-changing relationship between people, art, time and the city.
Asymmetric shape of the pavilion is constantly rotating which result in new compositions every moment. Cluster of five pavilions is located at the front plaza and one large pavilion is positioned at the back porch. The exit of each pavilion of the plaza changes its direction constantly which creates various movements of people and maximizes the experience of the exhibition within a given space. A large pavilion at the back porch rotates slowly which provides changing views toward the outside for the people within the pavilion.
Dancing Forest provides an unique exhibition experience and offers a resting place which communicates with the surrounding space. At the same time, with its odd contract with the old Seoul Station, it brings about new perspective of the past, current and the future.
