As SeMA Artist in Residence and 2011/12 Fulbright Scholar, Rice spent one year studying the speeds and scale of urban transformation in South Korea. Focusing on a number of sites in Seoul, this research contributed to a diverse body of work, including photography, sculpture, video, sound, and installation, that explores how memory is constructed, contained, and altered in space. Arcade Zero specifically brings together materials observed, collected, and fabricated in Sewoon Market, a soon-to-be-demolished series of arcade blocks in downtown Seoul. Combining neon lighting, live sound, and delayed video from an array of motion controlled closed-circuit cameras, the system reflects an environment in constant flux; alternately emerging and receding, yet ever out of phase with the surrounding space.
