Jae-Hoon Lee - Body Scape
23 October - 15 November 2001
Scars, lesions, scabs and spots come to the fore this
month at the Kiosk!
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.
Jae-Hoon Lee's exhibition in Kiosk is part of The Physics
Room curated series.
