Pull Me to Life by Juno Jeon Design Studio

Pull me to life is an end result of Juno Jeon project Movement. He imagined what if all object at his room are alive. If so, they will probably show all kinds of different movement based on their shape, structure, function and so on. He researched all kinds of movement which is made by objects in his room. During this research, Jeon found what really makes something look alive is not just ordinary movement of the object but unexpected movement which could make people surprise. With this research, Jeon decided to make a drawer, which he thought originally has a shape of animal, look alive.
Drawer basically has a pull and push movement. To make drawer alive, Jeon made this ‘pull and push’ movement generate another movement which is not predictable.
He made a temporary installation work with drawer based on his drawings. There is a drawer with feathers on the top of it. When the drawer is pulled and pushed, feathers are blown up to the air. This magical moment makes the drawer look alive as if it is breathing.
This drawer has special skin. When the drawer is closed, it is just a normal drawer with fancy skin. However, when the drawer is pulled, the skin slowly and gradually changes the color from back to front. It seems like the drawer is reacting to outer stimulus as if it is an animal. When the drawer is pushed back, the drawer changes the skin color again as if it falls asleep again.
