Abstract
This research focuses on the reinterpretation of Gayageum, a traditional Korean string instrument as it relates to traditional and contemporary digital design technology (e.g.: CAD/CAM). I chose Gayageum as the existing cultural symbol to focus my research on because its structural system contains elements similar to those of architecture. My hypothesis is as follows: Regardless of the complexity of the initial ‘design’ phase of Gayageum, by reducing the complexity of the Gayageum’s assembly and construction, its form, function, structure and other essential functions can be reinterpreted as a new cultural symbol organized with digital assembly logistics in relation to a specific interpretation of everyday life (i.e.: eastern Taoism) and digital tectonics, then the meaning of humans’ every day existence can be found in digital tectonics as related to the design-build of local architecture, which embodies cultural identity. I propose a possibility that merges disappearing local cultures and emerging digital cultures together through my hypothesis. The goal of my design-build experiment is to create a new cultural symbol by reinterpreting existing symbols using a digital assembly logistics to incorporate design, culture, tradition, and contemporary architecture. It is a connection between traditional identity and global digital technology. I plan to incorporate a variety of designs, cultures, traditions, and contemporary architectures by using digital assembly logistics. As a design methodology, I reinterpret Korean lifestyle including Korean paintings, Korean rice paper and even Korean sport, to guide the development of a form-finding process.This research focuses on the reinterpretation of Gayageum, a traditional Korean string instrument as it relates to traditional and contemporary digital design technology (e.g.: CAD/CAM).
