This observatory project is about the border area between North and South Korea, the 248 km-long DMZ (Demilitarized Zone).
In an artistic reflection combined with scientific research, this territory that has been isolated for over 60 years becomes an inner and outer view of nature, as a border immortalized within the country that not only separates systems and societies but also acts as a buffer and mediator.
The main part of the exhibition is an artistic archive that integrates research material on the DMZ and, in particular, the 14 observatories, revealing their real and utopian potential.
