Fractal Turtleship by the late Nam June Paik who originated the ‘art of light,’ was brought into the open square out of closed doors to mark the beginning of the festival representing Korea’s history, culture and high technology in the form of lights. Owned by Daejeon Museum of Art and occupying a space measuring 16m x 10m x 4m, the Fractal Turtleship is a video art installation created in commemoration of the 1993 Daejeon Expo.
