Accumulated Seokgwan

**This is a video work trying to create a new dimension of time and space through the interaction between human and computer, based on a certain region called Seok-gwan Dong, located in Seoul, South Korea.

(produced by: Minkyoung Bae, Taeyang Yoo, Daeun Joo, Hyewon Jang)

.

.

**We went through the following process to create this work:

1. Each member in the group(4 people) went to a specific spot in Seok-gwan Dong.

2. Each member took a still-video with his own camera.

3-1. Prepare a background video file by combining the different 4 videos taken from each member.

3-2. Reviewing the video taken on the step 2, each member analyzes his own video excluding personal emotion.

4. A text from each member is created based on the information extracted from the step 3-2.

5. When all the 4 texts are gathered, record the voice of the 4 people reading his own text at the same time through one microphone. (Korean)

6. The audio file created from the previous step is processed and interpreted by IBM Watson Speech to Text API (Korean) and a group of meaningless words is newly created

7. Based on the text from the step 6, each sentence (which was automatically separated by computer with period '.') is searched through google engine, and the first image that comes out as a result of each trial is saved.

8. Putting the video made from the step 3-1 on the background, the audio from the step 5 is overlaid with the image found from the step 7, according to the exact timing of the certain sentence driven from the audio file.

**This is the code we have written so far to make the process written above to be done automatically:
