ARTIST STATEMENT: "Digital Being" is a series of the kinetic installations of technological garbage based on the hypothetical existence of an invisible and formless creature born within the circuits of electronic waste. This creature evolves and responds to its environment through an atypical movement or specific interaction according to the machinery that it dominates.
Digital technology possesses unique intrinsic attributes to allow for this evolution to occur. According to Nicholas Negroponte, MIT Media Lab founder and author of the book “Digital Being”, the digital consists of bit where analogue consists of atoms. Bit is invisible, but it exists.
There are very simple digital codes in all electronics, such as televisions, speakers and computers. Not only is the daily output of these electronics incalculable, but there is also an enormous number of them are thrown away. Unless the memory chips or CPUs of the circuits are totally broken, they can still operate by the command codes inside their bodies.
What if these command codes were accidentally and repeatedly combined, generating mutant codes and errors among themselves? What if a code were to realize its consciousness during this continuous operation?
As digital technology is developing, the interactions among machines increases dramatically and produces more e-waste, therefore raising the possibility. My artwork, "Digital Being," is based on this hypothesis.

Pratt Manhattan Gallery presents From Digital and Back, an exhibition showcasing the work of eight recent Pratt Digital Arts alumni.

Each piece of work in this exhibition carries a distinct time stamp of today and incudes interactive installations and objects, digital images, video, animation, and digital mixed media. There is no language or aesthetic overlap. From emotionally charged machinima video, manipulated photographs of a near future, finding the soul in obsolete hardware, fantastical wearable devices, to handwritten poems, drawings, and a video chain of single moments, to visualizing emotions of finding one’s home and place in the world, the message always shapes the medium.

This exhibition represents a small selection of the many Pratt Department of Digital Arts alumni who are featured in important publications, exhibiting in galleries and new media institutions, and working in major creative industries. Graduates emerge as critically informed and skilled creators actively shaping our digital future. Alumni continue to build on their education to respond to a diverse and networked culture, and to produce experiences that provide audiences agency to explore critical issues.
