Art up Festival is where artists and the public use recycled materials to make artworks. Instead of recycling, they up cycle them. This is an original platform where artists and the public meet and share their views on social issues such as enviromental problems. This festival is held annually. In this festival, we offered 20 tons of electronic junk(mostly electronic appliances) thrown out from ordinary households in Seoul City to 100 artists. During the two days of the festival, participating artists created sculptures or installation art with these junk materials. The entire process was opened to the public in the concept of an open studio at the Han River event square. All pieces of art from this festival are scheduled to be exhibited at galleries in Seoul over the course of a year to build awareness around the issue of electronic junk. I participated in the 2nd Artupfestival_electonic junk as a project manager and project director.
