From April – June 2018, Fabio Antinori participated in the International Artist in Residence Program at the MMCA National Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art in Changdong, Seoul.

As part of the program, participating artists were asked to make use of their time to produce a new artwork and to take advantage of the networking opportunities offered by the museum, in order to familiarise themselves with the local art scene and to introduce themselves to curators, other artists and arts professionals.

Fabio used the grant he received from the BKS to fund his trip to Korea.

The Capital Standard

Interactive Sound Sculpture

This is the artwork that Fabio produced. It contains a database of official statistics as well as data gathered from Saju, a local ancient divination technique. This information was used to train a simple AI model.

Every time the audience interacts with the artworks this tries to predict the future of Korea or make a comment about the current scenario. Initially done in English it was then translated into Korean.
