    Caroline, Drift Train is a performance by Minjung Song on the 16th Dec 2018 at the Ilmin Museum of Art during PERFORM2018 in Seoul. The performance takes you to a station platform of a tiny village, telling the viewer about moving and drifting through the screen of a mobile phone. The designs for the performance include a fictional train ticket and packaging, a “lost cat” poster – and a thank you message for retrieving the cat. The ticket for the performance exists only as a 3D model. To witness the performance, you must have a cellular phone (with telephone number) and earphones. This performance is only for advance purchase. There are no on-site sales.

    The typography combines Blaze Type’s Oroban with an unidentified narrow sans serif for the numbers in red and two typefaces that refer to the steam age: Engravers Gothic with its flat bottom U, and Engravers (note that the designer kept the poor spacing of OU that comes with Monotype’s version.

      Could you change the designer’s name from Choi Subin to subin choi(me). It is the same name but a different person.
