[Anchor Lead] An unusual exhibit about nature's sacrifice to produce energy is underway in Seoul. The art show is an expression of our gratitude for nature that provides us with electricity.
[Pkg] Yellow drum containers loaded with radioactive waste from a nuclear power plant. Rocks from the ground where these barrels were buried fly toward the florescent lights. The florescent bulbs break and the lights go off one by one. This piece showed the retaliation of the earth after being sacrificed to generate electricity.
[Soundbite] HAN MOO-KWON(MEDIA ARTIST) : "I was impressed by the huge plant that produced electricity, which is invisible. I wanted to create art with it." The media artist with a ten-year career observed four nuclear reactors as well as thermo and hydro power plants. He arranged rocks from a disposal site in Gyeongju on a grassy field in the pattern of electrocardiograms. Water from a power plant is frozen and shaped into a chandelier to play a drum.
[Soundbite] HAN MOO-KWON(MEDIA ARTIST) : "We are not grateful to have electricity. But we need to conserve our resources for the future generation." From the production of electricity at power plants to the disposal of nuclear waste... This exhibit highlights how valuable energy is and how we should be thankful for nature's sacrifice.

Drum is involved with the world at the moment. It can be about many different its open and interpretation about what it is exactly about. It could be about many different warnings of things about to happen. A kind of a warning but some optimism at the end.

특정 문자를 지면(地面)에 반복적으로 덮어쓰는 넌버벌(non-verbal) 퍼포먼스, '바이러스'를 통해 자신이 몸담고 있는 뉴욕이라는 시공의 땅바닥을 발로, 몸으로 밟고 두드리며 세상에 말을 건내온 한무권. 그것은 이방인이자 경계인으로 살아가는 자신을 일깨우고 곧추세우려는 반성적 행위이자
