unspoken_series” is a site-responsive public performance, the artist uses text spelled out with LEDs on the backs of orange safety vests as a means of communication not an authority. The performance happens in public spaces like subway, social scenes like gallery openings where public etiquette filters out individual feelings and interaction. The texts subtly provoke the private space between individuals, for example, “ I want to fart, make me happy!” brings strangers together from sharing giggles to even conversations. Hoyun uses the technology as a mediator to connect an individual to an individual in public.
