POSSIBLE GALLERY
CATEGORY: ART OWNERSHIP 
BY EUGENE KIM + SANG WON JEE + DAN SHEN 



POSSIBLE GALLERY HOUSES COLLECTIONS OF POSSIBLE WORKS FOR A POSSIBLE NOW. BY MIXING VIRTUAL AND PHYSICAL  REALITIES,  THE  BUILDING  ACTS  AS  A  FORM  OF  SHELTER  FOR  IMMATERIAL  AND  MATERIAL  WORKS  AND HARBORS THE ACTS OF RE - AUTHORING BY USERS AND GUESTS FROM REMOTE AND NEAR. THIS IS EXEMPLIFIED BY DIVIDING THE GALLERY SPACES INTO FOUR DISCRETE WINGS OF EXHIBITION SPACES BY LINKING TOGETHER A GROUND FLOOR SPACE DEDICATED FOR PRODUCTION. IN CONTRAST TO EXISTING MUSEUM MODELS TODAY, WHICH PRIMARILY ZONES ART PIECES ACCORDING TO ITS RESPECTIVE MEDIUM, CHRONOLOGY, AND GEOGRAPHY, EACH WING  OF POSSIBLE  GALLERY CATERS  TO  A  SPECIFIC  FORMAT  OF  DIGITAL  RE-AUTHORING:  TEXTURE  MAPPING, MATERIAL RENDERING, MESH APPLICATION, AND FORM MANIPULATION. THUS, PROVIDING THE OPPORTUNITY FOR USERS  TO  EXPLORE  DIFFERENT  MODES  OF  ALTERATION  WITH  THE  COLLECTION  OF  POSSIBLE  WORKS.  WITH  THIS, POSSIBLE  GALLERY ACTS  BOTH  AS  A  TEACHING  MUSEUM  BY  HAVING  THE  CLASSICAL  TRADITION  OF  THE ACADEMIES AND A SALON TO SHOWCASE THE NEW AND THE NEXT. IT STAGES AN IRREVERENT DIALOGUE WITH THE CANON, PRIVILEGING CERTAIN ICONIC WORKS AS “HOME PAGES,” WHILE SIMULTANEOUSLY FACILITATING THEIR MULTIPLICATION AND MANIPULATION AT SCALE TO THE POINT THAT THEY BECOME SOMETHING ELSE. IN CONJUNCTION WITH THESE DIGITAL EXPERIENCES, THE BUILDING IS DESIGNED ON A MODULAR SYSTEM AND
USES  HIGHLY  “APPROPRIATE”  MATERIALS  FOR  CONTEMPORARY  ART  GALLERIES,  SUCH  AS  MINIMALIST,  VAGUELY SWISS, AND SPACIOUS SHOW ROOMS, BUT ALL OF THIS HELPS DISTINGUISH THE BUILDING ITSELF FROM THE DIGITAL CURATION. THUS, ALLOWING THE POSSIBILITY OF HAVING THIS MUSEUM COEXIST AS BOTH A REAL BUILT PROJECT AND  A  VIRTUAL  ONE,  WHERE  VISITORS  ARE  ABLE  TO  RE-SHAPE  THE  SPACE  THAT  HOUSES  THE  POSSIBLE COLLECTIONS AND THEIR CORRESPONDING ONLINE COLLECTIVES.
