An Art Gallery Tube in KBS
A tube? A Tunnel? A bridge? An art gallery? well...all of them.
This is actually a tube-shaped connecting bridge that (of course) connects things. What to connect? Building A and Building B inside KBS Complex. I pass this through 'tube' when I go to KBS World.
So, what is so interesting about it?
See the pictures posted on each side of the glass-pane tube?
Any familiar photo? "BOYs BEFORe FLOWERs? Yes, it highlights the achievement made by KBS through its television programs. Most representative programs are posted on this so called 'wall of fame'.
BUT....that's not all. Apart from highlighting the achievements, this tube is also dedicated to the pictures that show the less-fortunate friends of ours who live in different parts of the world. Captured on the camera, these pictures are for anyone passing by this hall.......to see and take a moment to think about the situation.
The left side: the dramas and programs made by KBS and on the right side: the pictures that would encourage us to take a closer notice and look into our world.
The tube is long enough for any representative dramas produced by KBS to be re-introduced. Even the 1980s hey-day were also portrayed here. Surely...none that I know of. But, that's the purpose of this art-gallery turned tube-bridge. Impressive, eh?
Once again: the section that would remind anyone of what KBS has achieved....
And...one section: for us to take a closer look at the colorful life in other parts of the world.
I think (if I am not mistaken), one of the reasons as to why these pictures are posted here is the fact that some renowned Korean actress did their voluntary work in this part of the world as part of the awareness program.
Then..why the hall is empty? Well..actually I made it so. I had to wait until no one was visible^^
Of course...lots of people kept on passing by this tube.
It just so happened that I took the picture patiently right until no one was visible.^^
* I think I love this tube for it really captures the spirit of how a space is well utilized into something meaningful.
And..the sun rays that penetrates the glass overhead...it's just perfect.
