“SOUND WALL”
The work “SOUND WALL,” consisting of two exhibitions, “Sound Wall” and “Sound Slope,” is based on Hangeul, the Korean alphabet. This work focuses on the following characteristics of the writing system:
Geometric characters (quadrilaterals, circles, straight lines, etc.)
Architectural characters (assembly of the initial consonant, medial vowel, and final consonant)
Identical sound and characters (no difference between sound and character)
Written characters convey meaning and a principle behind the generation, representing a search beyond the communicative function of character for the potential role as a system that can deliver artistic inspiration.
“Sound Wall” and “Sound Slope,” the two works displayed on the Media Wall and the Media Cube, respectively, are joined by a performance called “tacit.perform [ㄱㅈㄴㅁㅇ],” which connects the two works through its content and make use of the structural characteristics of the Media Wall and Media Cube. Both works are participatory audiovisual art, generating sounds and real-time visuals according to the audience’s character input.
Introduction
“SOUND WALL”
This work shows the processes of deconstruction and reconstruction involving the points, lines, and surfaces that make up the Hangeul on a 75-meter-long Media Wall. The text input from the audience members, collected through the Internet, is displayed on the screen before being deconstructed and moved around the Media Wall. In this process, audience members can see how a character changes from one form to another and how the factors that make up a character recombine into different shapes, gaming factors, and new characters with unknown meanings. Through this, Hangeul moves away from its traditional role of relaying meaning toward a means to convey artistic inspiration.
Sound Slope
This work, displayed on the screen installed at the Media Cube escalator, deconstructs the fundamental forms behind the creation of Hangeul—the circle (symbolizing the sky), the rectangle (representing the land), and the triangle (symbolizing the people).
The work accepts text input through mobile devices. These texts are displayed on the screen, then deconstructed into circles, rectangles, and triangles, eventually falling down the escalator.

The screen also features different obstacles, which collide with shapes and generate sounds. These sounds are played through a 24-speaker sound system installed in the Media Cube, allowing the audience to enjoy the sound in 3D.
Audiovisual Performance “tacit.perform [ㄱㅈㄴㅁㅇ]”
This performance uses the strokes used in writing as musical notations. Character inputs from the audience members or the musicians are divided into onset, nucleus, and coda, which are further divided into strokes. These strokes correspond to short rhythm fragments generated according to pre-defined rules, which then weave the different arrangements of these strokes into different combinations of rhythms. Each onset, nucleus, and coda make up its own sounds and rhythm. The result is a seeming repetition of these characters that do not, in fact, repeat.
Artist Introduction
Tacit Group
Tacit Group was formed in 2008 as an audiovisual performance group that pursues creating new art for the 21st Century. It is centered around composer Chang Jaeho and electronic musician Gazaebal (Lee Won-jin), and the group has performed globally from its basis in Seoul.
The group takes audiovisual art as its main content and the basis for its contemporary and experimental expansions, from multimedia performances to interactive installations and music albums.
Their works, such as “Hun-Min-Jeong-Ak,” “Game Over,” and “Morse ㅋung ㅋung,” combine a systematic worldview weaved through intuitive materials and technology inspired by games, text messages, chats, and other items from one’s daily life. Notably, their use of structural aesthetics and the communicative power of characters has won the group acclaim.
