Excerpt: Dozens of people in one of the world’s most wired nations have taken part in South Korea’s “space out” competition aimed at promoting a life free from stress and information overload.
About 60 contestants spent 90 minutes sitting in a public park in Seoul without talking, sleeping, eating or using any electronic devices during the event – under the slogan of Relax Your Brain.
The “space out” competition was launched by local artists in 2014 as an art installation event. Sunday’s contest – supported by Seoul city council – drew more than 1,500 online applicants for the available places in the competition.
