Architeuthis 아르키테우티스(오징어 정거장)
Created with giant squid as the motif, this installation piece served as a bus stop as well as a resting place for visitors at the front entrance of the Anyang Art Park. The architect conceived this work when he saw visitors having Pajeon (green onionseafood pancake), for which squid is used as an ingredient, at an art park located far from the sea,struck by the relationship between foodpeople. This installation, affectionately called the squid stop for its squid-like shape, went under review for complete overhaul (options for which include de-installation) after the bus stop was relocatedsafety concerns were raised. In response to such development, we decided to preserve this structure in the Digital Archive as Architeuthis, the scientific name of giant squid.
