About

Join us for a panel discussion with Deborah Levitt (Assistant Professor of Culture and Media, The New School), Margaret Schedel (Assistant Professor of Music at Stony Brook University) and Technoimagination: Living Data artists Yoon Chung Han (Eyes), Haru Ji (Infranet) and Eunsu Kang (Aural Fauna), moderated by Xin Wang (independent curator and art critic).

Within the context of the Technoimagination: Living Data exhibition, the panel will examine the use of artificial intelligence, artificial life, and data in art. The discussion will also shed light on the ways in which the Living Data artists are incorporating these media in their practices to explore post-information age themes such as the ethical issues of artificial intelligence, the privacy of biometric data, and the living ecosystems of virtual environments.

Space is limited, rsvp required.

Technoimagination, the theme of the Korean Media Arts Festival 2019, introduces to New York the unique situation and characteristics of media art in Korea, as a leader of IT, in a post-media or post-digital contemporary art era. Presented at The Sylvia Wald & Po Kim Gallery (SWPK) are the exhibition sub-themes Technoimagination: Memories in Time and Space and Technoimagination: Living Data, featuring works by Chan Sook Choi, Yoon Chung Han, Haru Ji & Graham Wakefield, Eunsu Kang & Collaborators, Hahkyung Darline Kim, Beikyoung Lee, and Cheol-Woong Sim.

The Korean Media Arts Festival 2019 is organized by the Donghwa Cultural Foundation, sponsored by the Korea Foundation, and presented in collaboration with SWPK and Harvestworks.
