Y2K is a project-based team composed of Yaloo a media artist, Bobae Kim a communication designer, and Houneyh Kim a conceptual artist. Marching in beat with the globalism, the team wishes to act as a spiritual messenger to promote the world peace, hope and dream by suggesting harmony between nature-artificial, analog-digital, mind-body, spiritual-material, east-west, and every bipolar values.
The dawn of "The Auspicious Ten" is a teaser video that introduces 10 lively cute baby characters with bobbling sexual energies. Inspired from traditional eastern symbols called Shipjangsaeng, they signify fertility, longevity, and immortality. With the mission to fulfill the team's goal, which is to wish well-being and happiness for the entire humanity, Y2K turned these symbols with a twist of contemporary aesthetics and whimsical playfulness in hope of finding the balance to realize the universal harmony.
Video will be projected in the evening after dark, visible from the street!
