Scars, lesions, scabs and spots come to the fore this month at
A computer monitor installed in the Kiosk presents an endless expanse
of body and skin, the camera panning obsessively over and across,
again and again. Auckland based digital artist Jae-Hoon Lee documents
his body in a state of constant vitality, depicting his physicality
as a biological algorithm with the constant flow of space and time.
Utilizing the body's surface vulnerabilities - scars, black spots,
bruises and wrinkles, Jae-Hoon relocates and resizes these marks
by computer manipulation into a simulacrum of media information
and code - reworking his own flesh and blood into a virtual body.
KIOSK is a permanent
public art site for temporary installations of new audio, screen-based,
and object based work, twenty four hours a day / seven days a week.
Located on the corner
of High and Manchester Streets (outside Java Cafe) in Christchurch, New
Zealand. Check out the web site for documentation and further info: www.physicsroom.org.nz/oblique/kiosk/
