Soi Project Island ((IKON)) – 27 May – 22 June 2008

“Established in 2003 by Japanese architect Jiro Endo and Thai artist Wit Pimkanchanapong, Soi Project is a group of artists, musicians, architects and designers engaging audiences in interactive and social situations. Soi launched Ikon’s new Eastside space in May 2008 with a three-dimensional island,an imaginary land mass made from a composite of satellite images drawn from Google Earth™. The passage of time on the island was simulated through the use of lighting that gradually shifted from night time darkness through brilliant daylight over a 24 minute cycle. Visitors were encouraged to influence the landscape and occupy areas of their choice by attaching templates of buildings, swimming pools and beach umbrellas.”

An exhibition that took place at the Birmingham Ikon Gallery of a landscape model, created in topology style, and allows the visitors can interact, walk around, and be part of the exhibition. A huge inspiration to how I would be setting out the whole layout of my ‘Final Major Project’, creating an environment where visitors can be part of and interact and feel the same emotion of the refugees that ran from one village to another.
