Machine with Tree

 Machine with Tree is a kinetic sculpture combining dead trees with metal machinery. It is designed to use the objects center of gravity to achieve a movement where the tree appears to float in midair. In Machine with Tree, a dead tree is placed at the end of a long, sharp rod on the machine. The tree slowly moves back and forth with the machine’s movements, as though floating in midair. Through its creation of artificial, bizarre movements controlled by machinery, it illustrates a melancholy contemplation of the strange and contradictory things woven together by our reality.

Since 2015, UJOO+LIMHEEYOUNG has been involved in projects using everyday objects to create mechanical devices with odd and unfamiliar movements. Through these projects, they have developed mechanical devices that evoke feelings of discomfort and awkwardness turning trees in midair, grinding and flinging rubber tubes, twisting hair, and so forth. UJOO+LIMHEEYOUNG focuses on the emergent, unfamiliar movements that result from the combination of machinery with ordinary, everyday objects such as chunks of cement, hair, dead trees, red fluid, and silicone rubber. 

<Machine with Tree>는 죽은 나무와 금속 기계가 결합된 키네틱 조각으로 사물의 무게중심을 이용하여 공중에 부유하는 듯한 나무의 움직임을 구현하도록 고안된 기계장치이다. 죽은 나무가 기계의 뾰족한 긴 막대 끝에 올려져 있고 나무는 기계의 움직임에 따라 공중에 떠다니듯 이리저리 천천히 움직인다기계에 의해 제어되는 인위적이고 어색한 움직임을 만들어 냄으로써 현실이 엮어내는 기이하고 모순적인 것들에 대한 음울한 사유를 보여준다.

우주+림희영은 2015년부터 일상의 사물을 이용하여 어딘가 이상하고 익숙하지 않은 움직임을 가진 기계장치를 만드는 프로젝트를 진행해왔다이 프로젝트를 통해 공중에서 나무를 회전시키거나 고무를 비비거나 튕기고 머리카락을 꼬이게 하는 등 다소 불편하고 어색한 느낌들을 자아내는 움직임을 가진 기계장치들을 만들어 왔다시멘트덩어리머리카락죽은 나무붉은 액체실리콘 고무 등 일상의 평범한 사물과 기계의 결합으로 인해 발생하는 우발적이고 낯선 움직임에 주목한다.

It was beautiful

We wanted to talk about loss. The harsh reality instilled in people a feeling of alarm, a sense of tension or antagonism, causing us to develop despairing ideas about the society in which we live. It was like a battle with something that lacks any substance. It felt like losing something beautiful; it felt empty. We sensed how you can no longer return to the beautiful moments of the past. We wished to address the disappointment of a reality where we wish to return to a time before we developed our despairing and pessimistic views – but things do not go as we hope.

상실감에 대한 이야기를 하고 싶었다. 냉혹한 현실은 사람에 대한 경계심이나 긴장감 혹은 적대감을 가지게 하고 내가 살고 있는 사회에 대해 절망적 시각을 가지게 했다. 실체가 없는 대상과의 싸움 같았다. 뭔가 아름다운 것을 잃어버린 기분이 들었다. 공허했다. 예전의 아름다웠던 순간으로 돌아갈 수 없음을 느꼈다. 절망적이고 비관적인 시각을 갖기 전으로 돌아가고 싶지만 뜻대로 되지 않는 현실에 대한 안타까움을 이야기하고 싶었다.

Bird

One time, a bird got in through a crack in our roof. I could hear the fluttering of its wings in the cramped rooftop space. Although it was a narrow crack in the roof formed by age, the bird continued flapping its wings for several days, perhaps still believing it could fly. After a few days, I could not hear the bird’s wings any longer. Did the bird die? Or did it survive and escape? I hear the sounds of a struggle to live.

언젠가 지붕 틈 사이로 새가 들어온 적이 있다. 지붕 속 좁은 공간에서 푸드득 날갯짓 소리가 들려왔다. 지붕이 낡아 어쩌다 생긴 좁은 틈이었음에도 불구하고 여전히 날 수 있다는 생각을 하는지 며칠을 날갯짓을 했다. 며칠이 지나고 새의 날갯짓 소리는 더 이상 나지 않았다. 그 새는 죽었을까. 아니면 무사히 살아서 나갔을까. 살려고 버둥거리는 소리가 들린다.
