One day, a wannabe science fiction writer struggling with lonely and gloomy life hears the sound of the microwave talking to her.

Program Note

One day, a microwave emits a sound signal to a struggling aspiring writer, initiating communication between humans and machines. They fill each other’s loneliness and get closer. As the writer watches a movie, they gradually become captivated by the charm of the microwave and mistakenly believe that this companion machine possesses facial expressions and emotions like a living being. The work raises contemplation about the formation and evolution of relationships. (YEOM Jiho)
