Pavel, Design a Toolkit for Travel, 2020


PROJECT BACKGROUND
Due to COVID-19, people tend to spend more hours at home,
while abundant digital contents seem to be able to replace the room for traveling.
However, we believed that lively experience that travelers go through during the whole process of travel,
such as planning travel, heading to a destination, and meeting new people is a unique value of travel that
digital contents cannot replace.

With this in mind, project ‘pavel’ is planned to introduce meaningful places where experience is important.
The project is supported by Province GyeongGi Cultural Foundation in South Korea.

Project Context & Concept - What is ‘Pavel’?
 

‘Pabal’ is a method for communication in the Joseon Dynasty, and the messenger had to ride horses
to travel to several regions in order to deliver confidential documents quickly.

‘Pavel’ is a combination of ‘Paval’ and ‘travel’, which means that travellers make meaningful information and deliver it through travels.
Travelers who participate ‘Pavel’ play a role of recording their experiences in a travel spot as a ‘experience information’ and sharing to others.
In other words, they are doing a job of making and delivering information, which is above enjoying their travels.

1. Select topics     2.Find participants     3. Distribute Pavel cards and collect result data.     4. Display a Pavel popup Gallery
