Choi-Go(Best) Water Fountain. Installation

styrofoam, LED lights, steel, PVC print, and participatory fabric notes. 144 × 109 × 138 cm. May 2021

This fountain sculpture was inspired by a field study on medical water in Sanbang Mountain, one of the most famous tourist attractions in South Korea, and interviews with two religious escapees from JMS (Jesus Morning Star, founded by Jung Myung-Seok) about the holy water in their nature sanctuary. I collaged the researched visuals and catchphrases from those sites and created a new fountain for Choi-Go Water, which even has a rail on which viewers can hang their wishes.

The installation casts the questions about the power of cult and tourism which designs and produces illusive values.
