By Artist Mina Cheon. This is a short section from the video installation "Traveling to Dokdo," which was a three single-channel video installation in The Dokdo Room at the Sungkok Art Museum, Seoul, Korea, January - March 2012. Currently used as a video short for promoting "The Dokdo Project."
Mina Cheon's "Traveling to Dokdo" includes video of going to Dokdo by boat, coming from Dokdo by boat, and a center video of various virtual traveling to the island that is possible with today's technology such as visiting Dokdo via Google Earth, online 3D tour, and through Second Life. It also includes footages of the artist running the Dokdo Marathon in Seoul in October 2011 wearing a spy camera and capturing all the people running to celebrate Korea's national Dokdo Day, October 25. This video is juxtaposed with an overlapping inner video frame of the artist as "URKorean," a Korean tiger avatar, roaming around Dokdo in Second Life. In between twenty minutes video segments, there is a video short of the various Dokdo traveling with K-pop music soundtrack "Daehanminguk," the 2010 Korea World Cup song by BEG, Rain, 4Minute and more. Original three video single channel length: 45:30 minutes.
