Everyware: Hyunwoo Bang & Yunsil Heo – Cloud Pink
Lying down on a hill with your pupils filled with the endless blue sky, the perspective of your eyesight suddenly gets distorted and clouds drift at the tip of your nose. You stretch your arms up to the sky to touch the clouds but can’t reach them. There’s another world right above your head.
Today, I visualize my colorful cloud of words right in front of your eyes. Touch the pink clouds drifting on a giant fabric screen and remember clouds of dreams in your childhood. I spent countless sleepless nights just to realize my unproductive and romantic cloud of words. But, wouldn’t it be nice if we could feel the clouds at our fingertips?
