Dreamer 3:45 am Exhibit in Lotte Museum of Art

Dreamer 3:45 am An exhibition at the Lotte Museum of Art invites you to enter the world of imaginative life created by artists that can make you dream.

Last Friday, October 29th, my friend and I went to Lotte Art Museum located in Jamsil. It is actually on the 7th floor of the Lotte Tower. Museum tickets provided by Songpa Tourist Information Center And Global mates in Seoul. Last year, the Tourist Information Center also sponsored free tours to Seoul Sky and Lotte Aquarium.

This year, they sponsored free tickets to the Dreamer 3:45 am Exhibit at the Lotte Museum of Art. One Global Seoul Mate can bring one friend or mate, so I invited my girlfriend Jenna to join me. We met at Jamsil Station Exit 1 and went to the Tourist Information Center to collect our tickets. To our surprise, we also got gifts from them.

After we got our tickets and gifts, we went straight to the museum to see the exhibition.

What is a Dreamer 3:45 am?

Dreamer 3:45 is a dark space gallery where you can feel like you are in a dream. The exhibition is divided into five parts created by ten international contemporary artists and famous Korean musicians. Visual arts and music were combined to make the audience feel and explore their senses while dreaming.

Part One: The Shape of Dreams

Do you think dreams have their own forms? If there was, what would it be? This topic was created by Fabrikr and CODE KUNST. The shape of dreams has large hoops when viewed closely and resembles a flat circle when viewed from afar.

When I saw him, I felt that I was in a dream running through circles, leading me to another dream. This space creates a peaceful atmosphere with music and light. I also passed a small and dark space where I heard footsteps, water drops and mysterious sounds, called the passage. I felt like I was having a nightmare for a few seconds.

Part 2: Chaos Times

the Chaos times Created by United Visual Artists (based in London) and Peggy You from Berlin. This space was dark but mixed with some laser-like lights that follow the beat of Peggy Joe’s electronic dance music “The Green Light.” Chaotic Times represents our unconscious dream of time and space.

Part 3: Inspirational Pauses

This dimly lit space is media art made with LED lights that glow brightly reflecting off the water. The background music was calm and soothing as I dreamed as if I was watching the stars. the Inspirational breaks They were made by SILO Lab while the music was played by frankincense.

Part 4: Eternal Journey

Eternal Journey is interactive artwork by Studio AR + ECh and Yun Seok Cheol. When I entered this space there were rugs and cushions where you can sit or lie while watching the colorful patterns emerge from the LED walls.

The artists based this art on our unconscious and endless narrative dreams that drift from reality and the unreal. The Timeless Journey has motion sensors that detect the movement of the audience and a touch screen where the viewer can film their dreams.

Part 5: However, dreams come true

When we entered the museum, this was the first subject we saw, However, dreams come true. At first, I don’t understand what this means. There were floating heads, decapitated torso, and legs dancing to an eccentric rhythm at the same time. I later found out that the dancers are from the Ambiguous Dance Company. The movements and the music are the same, it’s like an endless recurring dream that keeps him from coming back. The background music that was played, “Signal Dream” was made by Lim Youngjoo.
