Last Week, Kristian and I went to Korean Cultural Center of the Philippines to witness the beauty of Punghwa, the Light of ASEAN. We went first to the ground floor to register and showed them our vaccination card when we arrived. Take note that the admission is FREE.
KOREAN CULTURAL CENTER
The Korean Cultural Center in the Philippines is thrilled to present Punghwa, Light of ASEAN, its 10th Anniversary and Opening Commemorative Exhibition in partnership with Korea’s Asia Culture Center, which strives to promote cultural interactions between Korea and Asia.
Korean Cultural Center in the Philippines started in 2011 and has been exchanging cultural knowledge between the two countries for the last decade. The KCC also learned about the parallels between Korea and the Philippines throughout these years.
PUNGHWA, LIGHT OF ASEAN
Punghwa, Breezing Ember, and Myohwa, Mysterious Fire, are two dynamic lighting artworks that wonderfully convey this concept through magnificent experience imagery. This artwork, created by the media artist collective SILO Lab, explores several facets of ASEAN’s light culture.
Punghwa, Breezing Ember, a kinetic lighting installation that incorporates repurposed traditional lanterns, depicts a scenario of people soaring their desires over the river. With Myohwa, Mysterious fire, which evokes the analog feel of incandescent bulbs with their ignition and extinction, they convey the beauty of the lights and the dreamlike sensation created by their glimmer.
We had so much fun roaming around at KCC. I learned a lot about Korea apart from visiting the PUNGHWA on the 5th floor. Watch out for our next blog about KCC.
