Public Media Art—Emotional Transitions
Public Art Academy Berlin, Goethe-Institute Thailand
Bangkok, Thailand

Urban Media Art Academy together with Goethe-Institut Thailand had the open call which invited for urban media artwork ideas and concepts developed for Bangkok under the theme Emotional Transitions. Under the theme, this call invited artworks that may reveal or facilitate ‘emotional transitions’ in the urban context. The theme speaks to concrete situations of transition that are simultaneously moments of time and transformation – of the city and of the human being – from one mood to another or from one state of self to another. The selected artist had attended workshop in November 17-19, 2017 during the Bangkok Design Festival 2017.

According to my thesis research about Klongchan Public Housing in Bangkok, I chose to do the media art here to solve the problem that happens in this community. This community is lack of interaction and has unhealthy relationship which can be a cause of crime, drug abuse, vandalism, etc. The media art may be an activity that glue people together and make friends.

During the workshop, my idea has been developed. Susa Pop and Tanya Toft gave me many advises to make my proposal be more reasonable and possible. We had many good lectures from various experts that opened up our eyes. Finally we were asked to do the presentation of our proposal into a poster to display in "Free Form Festival". And I ended up with this proposal.
