Kyung-jin Kim (b. South Korea) is a process-oriented artist. He utilizes diverse media to approach the substance of liminality inherent to dislocation, translation and adjustment. His method looks to scattered encounters with networks and systems of data, and to how this experience shifts with proximity, as well as the motions and elisions of one’s memory. Kyung-jin intentionally misuses existing virtual representation, translation and surveillance technology to measure the blindspot between information and subjective understandings. Through sculpture and models, video projections, and interactive sound installations, he inducts a sense of what cannot be known through palpable lapse and void.
‘Nothing Personal’ is an interactive installation where the voice and position matters. In this built environment, every component influences its surroundings. The project focuses on how we communicate and highlights the areas in which nuance is blurred and communication and intention break down. The devices change their environment depending on the participant and the participant’s physical position in the space.
The sounds you make and the conversations you have will be picked up, amplified and transformed into a visual realm. The sense of private and public boundaries will be blurry and blended together playing with notions of an ideal equilibrium.
During the show, sound-triggered tools will be open to the public to use freely as an open mic.
