Brewed in HotGlue
Focused on visually pursuing the question: "What is human in the context of the post-human?", one of the mediums used in my series is based on mix media sculptures where I use organic forms juxtapose manufactured technological components. For the representation of the organic human form, I have decided to use my body as the subject of the study. I have created facial moulds that resemble “death masks” that can be found in art museums and anthropological collections. The computer boards have been selected to match the form factor of the human head and layer on the back of the face. The intention is to get the viewers to wonder about the authenticity of the artwork: is it a real technological breakthrough? Is it possible that we are actually witnessing a “specimen” of human achievement in building a “post- human”? And if so, what does it all mean? The intention of the artist here is to evoke exploration, captivation and fantasy as described by Brigid Costello and Ernest Edmonds in their paper “A Study in Play, Pleasure and Interaction Design” 2007.
Jinsil Hwaryoung Seo is an interactive artist/researcher focusing on aesthetics of interactive experience. Currently she is an assistant professor in the Department of Visualization at the College of Architecture and a faculty fellow in the Center for Health Systems & Design at Texas A&M University. Seo received a Ph.D. in Interactive Art and Technology from Simon Fraser University in Canada and an MFA in Computer Arts from School of Visual Arts. With interdisciplinary, interactive art practice, Seo investigates the intersection between body, nature and technology. Seo has been fascinated by the aesthetic qualities of human experience, the relationships that emerge through interactions within artworks, the underlying beauty and pattern inherent in the nature. Seo has chosen interactive art for her creative practice and research in particular as it encourages immersive and embodied relationships within a work of art. Seo has exhibited and published her art research projects nationally and internationally.
