Project description

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.
