"Leibniz conceived the universe as composed of "monads", microscopic substances each of which lives in Slavoj Zizek
its own self-enclosed inner space, with no windows onto its environs. One cannot miss the uncanny
resemblance between Leibniz's "monadology" and the emerging cyberspace community in which global harmony
and solipsism strangely coexist. That is to say, does our immersion into cyberspace not go hand in hand
with our reduction to a Leibnizean monad which, although "without windows" that would directly open up to
external reality, mirrors in itself the entire universe? More and more, we are monads with no direct windows
onto reality, interacting alone with the PC screen, encountering only the virtual simulacra, and yet
immersed more than ever into the global network, synchronously communicating with the entire globe."
Citizens of the world are spending their lives staring into the reflective surfaces of their mobile phones
and desktop computers. I think that social context determines the value of the media, tendency itself of dispaying medium have to be
thought as social message. Lev Manovich said that as a window of a Web browser comes to replace cinema and television screen, a wall in art gallery, a library and a book, all at once, the new situation manifest itself: all culture, past and present, is being filtered through a computer, with its particular human-computer interface. inputting and analyzing data, running simulations, searching the Internet, playing computer games, watching streaming video, listening to music online, trading stocks, and so on. This kinds of convergence is a Web browser employed both in the office and at home, both for work and for play
I am exploring
possibility of new abstract with new media. I combine the longing of
the human soul for spiritual revealation with new social phenomenon.
painting have different meanings from previous modern abstract painting.
It has the Dynamic form
which is form that changes in time. It has the element of Time.
My flickering geometric forms imply various meanings of discontinuety,
dromologie , supernatural and theology.The object becomes the dematerilization
by the fast velocity and movement.
Regarding Abstract Expressionism as limited by accounts that have considered
it in isolation from popular
culture and broader social issues,I want to reset the task of investigating
this art with new media culture and social context.
In the late nineteenth, the western bourgeois ideal of a centralized
and autonomous individual reflects ideology of the the abstract
expressionism. modernism painting has been recognized as a white male
web is subversive and democratic.With the low culture of WEB which can
be accessed by anybody,
I want to try new possibility of new abstract.
For me, the digital canvas is another representation tool. Browser is
not only the way it looks but also
an inevitable basis of existence in the new space. If the history of
fine art is against the frame of canvas,
new painting will be founded on the browser, a element of being.
In the past, inherent trait of painting reveals through the recognitions
and enactments of medium.
As the tool and matarial,we have to reconsider the new medium.
are fuctioned both in the web and gallery context.
I am looking for an aesthetic capable of the new digital images in the
Its fundamental category is the sublime. my aesthetic subject is the
sublime. The significance of the sublime
as an aesthetic subject of art seems to lie in its conceptual reach,
or in the case of the religious sublime,
in its spiritual dimension. The sublime refers to immense ideas like
space, time, death, and the divine.
something that cannot be represented in the dehors. When We feel the
world beyond ,
we enter the realm of the sublime.To make visible that there is something
which can be conceived and
which can neither be seen nor made visible.we have the idea of the world,
but we do not have the capacity to show an example of it. The simulacra
is as far removed from ¡®reality¡¯ as
it is possible to be.But this true reality exists and is there awaiting
discovery by us.
This would be a desire to seek permenance in the instable and forged
to invent new kind of space. this is the hybrid space and paradoxical
space. virtuality, reality, transcendence...
We shall not attempt to define what is a virtual domain or a virtual
In Being and Time (1927) Heidegger claims that human life is characterized
by the fact that we live
within a field of given and open possibilities. To exist as a human
being means having to construct our own life.
We consider more and more the virtuality of computer to be the real
thing. reality becomes a possible actualization of artificiality.
To transcend means to go beyond. Maybe we discover that there is something
as there is also something-thing beyond nature or existence , not just
the simple fact of being.
receive vibrations from painting. these vibrations emanate from colors.
my medium is light not painting and not sclpture. I began thinking in
terms of light rather than color.
light can let us experience transcendent power. light affects perception.
in the beginning , there was light, simply light. the words"let
there be light" marked the begining of everything.
light is intrinsic to our physical and spiritual selves.
it gives us the power of vision. light has come to mean illumination
and enlightenment, a possesion of
mind. that illumination is often spiritual in nature, applied to God
as the source of devine light.
"devine light" has streamed through stained glass into the
interiors of churches.
A person who comes from the outside into the relative darkness of a
cathedral is struck by the light pouring
through the colored glass. Like a Rothko painting, mystical colors and
luminosity create feeling of spirituality.
I want to create an atmosphere. wordless thouht that come from looking
in a fire and the ocean ...
I am in
the pursuit of new sublime sentiment in the new media place.
The New visual culture has changed our visual perception and cognition.
Benjamin said that new media trains people¡¯s perception through the
simulation fitting the velocity of
the modern times. I am exploring a new sublime now found in technology
with biblical event.
In my work, Eternity and transcendency in the theological event are
compatible with the temporality
and existence derived from the influence of electronic media .
