SITE01_MEDIA CELL is installed in Public Space designed by Francisco Sanin for Gwangju Folly I. Utilizing an existing Folly located in between the old downtown area and Asia Culture Center, this new booth will be the first gate of Fun Pun Folly that acts as a portal to another dimension of space while implying the connection with existing Follies. The screen in the booth that reacts to the touch of the visitors will show the way to the outer space beyond space and time.
Just as it is read, Fun Pun Folly is a folly for joy and pleasure. Consisting of booths installed in 4 different sites, each reflects different themes while occupying abandoned or unexpected spaces. By opening the door of each Folly, you encounter a new world of light. Inspired by an organic being through which the light of Gwangju could flow, it draws the attention and interest of visitors while providing interactive contents based on different forms of light.
