What is a Whole Empty?
by: Nayoung Lee
'What is completely empty?'
The society we live in has a lot of spaces and various places. Here is a space filled with various objects (goods and things).
'Is this space filled? Or is it empty?'
'What are these spaces filled with you?'
There are still things left here when you leave this place, but we usually talk. At the end of the lesson or at the end of the day, I leave the place and say,
We fill the empty space with what we need. But sometimes we do not realize that we can not fill more. I think it is wisdom to take out what was to fill the new. Human life is a repetition of 'filling' and 'emptying'. If it is full, you can not fill it more. Therefore, we have to empty.
'What is in your space now filled?'
'And what are you holding?'
'What more do you want to fill?'
I inspired an environment about this UK weather, Raining. Most days the rains are co ming and full in our lifes, even not the England weather, the nature and our human are live together and already combined from the world built. I would like to describe the life of human to show. We normally live and feel similar lives in modern society. When you open your eyes in the morning, the day starts and students go to schools, universities, colleges and even part-jobs. Workers go their organisations to earn money and build up their qualification and careers. There are no special and an amazing happenings to us like an animations or films such as heros or fantasy stories. That is why I chose and hope to expressed to this field, so I used great quality phonographs sauces and to present the mood closely and gained the closely real sounds to hear for us in our lives. For instance, when I lived in Coventry, every morning I heard the birds' chirping and felt those sounds stronger especially after rainy day.
In this my Net Art works, actually, there are some problems for working codes about sound and URL parts. I wanted to express when you pressed the mouse for any objects such as a clock, a bird, bubbles and a radio, there are some sounds each. Additionally, there is a TV object which is linked with a video web page that I made about our human's daily life. At that moment, the code is right way to wrote with p5 references but, it does not work to interact.

If you can not find the video, there is a link about the video on top of this part.
I effected by Penelope Umbrico's artworks about this "Sunset Portraits from Sunset Pictures on Flickr, 2010 – ongoing". This work is produced by Penelope Umbrico to started in 2010 until now 2016. At first, 8,462,359 pictures of sunsets were gradually increased to 30,253,384 photos. There are human who is striking a pose and various compositions of sunsets with background of sky. Also, those all images have people at least a person maximum 2 people with background of the sunset. Most of photos were taken in front of the beach or near the sea and we can feel and observe texture of different types of appearances of the sunsets even the speed of wind and waves of the ocean straightly, but we could not realise which season of the sunsets.
So, I decided topic about human's life and produced one of main elements about artwork about the "Rain". You can see there are some nice photographys located above and below and those images are shown in my video as well. In here, the raining sounds and visuality of images stimulate our sensations of psychological emotions and physical senses.
Think about when the heavy rain is coming outside and the sound of rain dropping is hearing to your ears. That sound which the drops hit the windows to make sounds. Suddenly raining definitely makes people wet, so some people are running and some people have umbrellas and others are waiting to stop. After raining, all grounds wet and there are some smells stimulate olfactory sense by wet ground with grasses, soil and air etc. If the rain came while a whole night, next morning, the sunset is coming to rise and birds are chirping. And there are some puddles that are able to reflect and see our selves. These display the ordinary and repeated daily lifes without any special events.

There are human who is striking a pose and various compositions of sunsets with background of sky. Also, those all images have people at least a person maximum 2 people with background of the sunset. Most of photos were taken infront of the beach or near the sea and we can feel and observe texture of different types of appearances of the sunsets even the speed of wind and waves of the ocean straghtly, but we could not realise which season of the sunsets.
Moreover, his artworks made me to decide to produce human's life by the best quality of photographs and I developed to make it for interactions with people which can be used mouse clicks and sounds even a video which I made and described the modern people's lifes.
There are videos links about Penelope Umbrico shortly about 10 minutes.
