Drunken Drone, 2019. Media Performance (LED, Drone). 13min.

The opening performance Drunken Drone (2019) highlights the intimate relationship between humans and machines by giving personality to a drone as a personal medium that enjoys nature and understands other's feelings. The demons in the form of a drunken drone sympathize with the woman who is experiencing difficult times in life and comfort her by turning the hidden rice into alcohol.

The hidden 'rice' symbolizes the sorrow and joy we as human beings experience in a lifelong journey and at the same time the internal conflicts and various social traumas. ΅®Rice΅― is set as the first cause of all conflicts, and as a means for survival.

The digital demon as a drunken drone comes as a light which comforts human beings as they confront the limitations which they can never overcome by themselves. Beyond the characteristics of the existing media, drones exist as a personal medium that understands human beings more than the human themselves and creates a connection between humans and machines that can only be achieved through the drink, which is interpreted as a light, which sublimates the pain and affection felt by humans in light of the modern civilized society.
