Franticham - Seoul (2010)
This is a picture of FRANTICHAM taken in Seoul in January 2010.
Who is Franticham???
It's Antic-Ham from Seoul and Francis Van Maele from Ireland.
This picture is a reflection of us in a TV set from Nam June Paiks'
"Fractal Turtle Ship".
It's an installation using 348 objects including television monitors, phonographs, radios, polaroid cameras, electric toasters, fish, stuffed turtles as well as broken automobile and piano parts.
Nam June Paik did this work as homage to the Korean admiral Yi Sun-Sin who used a ship in the form of a turtle in successful combats against the Japanese naval forces in the 15th century.
