MINT PARK

Korea, South 1991

Traveling and moving back and forth in between two cultures (Korea and U.S.) brings me to dynamic range of people’s and things’ stories and sceneries. From a decade of such experience, I found fascinating and treasurable of widely different perspectives existing within one space. From this city, building, and room to the next one, or just from this point which my eyes and ears are held to an inch away, the size and range of differences in perspective can vary physically, culturally or conceptually, and it yields myriads of windows to approach a reality. My artistic interest and practice lies on top of revealing these multitude of portraits drawn by different point of views hence, continuously redefining the fluctuating existential qualities of time and space in contemporary techno-media society. Through art of sound composition, science of acoustics and muti-media technology, I seek for simple, intuitive yet creative structures and patterns as an instrument to conceive and apprehend each moment of the reality as its own phenomenon.

Project

Based on the idea of altering and re-interpreting current space and time and making it into something else, a plane which bridges between reality and digital space. I have been using landscape data of made by people and objects in a room, to create and control sounds and visuals, which are senses that we reference time and space. The received data and sound can be recorded from the space of performance but also at the same time it will be distributed in visual format over the net through a log-in server as virtual human imprint.

In a way, this is an instrument, interface, and a platform designed for collaborations, where different mediums and different time qualities are seamlessly welded. The project will be similar to my previous work, Matrix Chamber(2015), except this time, it will be more intricately designed in terms of its sound, visuals and interactivity with the audience. In other words, the instrument can be custom to artists or user in control of the space. The idea is to create a day long round-the-clock event consists of short performances through out day to indicate passing of every hour or change of time and space in artistic measurement.

During the residency I will be gathering a handful of artists from musicians to choreographers and visual artists to participate and be part of the installation and performance. I will also be building simple and light physical objects which audience can interact with.
