Choreographer Hur Yun-kyung’s performance studies the body in its surrounding space. It’s about the relationships we have with space. ’Skin-ship’ describes physical contacts between people in ‘Konglish’ (Korean-English). ‘Space-ship’ is an analogy of ‘Skin-ship’. She asks questions about relationships and visualizes space as a large body.
The location of the performance was the former Seoul station, a historic place right in center of Seoul. Through this location, artists and audience could develop a perfect feeling for the meaning of this performance.
For this project I had been responsible in developing graphics and typographic design. On developing the graphical concept, I focused on visualizing movements of the performers in space. The graphics got used on advertisement, posters, printed leaflet and intro graphics for the website. On the graphical design concept I worked together with the illustrator Yeo Daha and the photographer Ok Sang-hoon.
The graphic design helped to communicate with the target audience. The project sold enough ticket and gathered the audience.
The graphical design concept (a complex visualization that combines illustrations, text, and photographs) I presented got positive feedback from the performers and the audience.
