DIGITAL BEING: TV BEING 006 + 009 WITH TRAFFIC LIGHTS
Taezoo Park Korea born, NYC based artist, has been making artwork out of abandoned technology combined with digital media to bring to life a hypothetical creature from inside machines. He calls this new life “Digital Being". He has been working on finding and depicting these inherent creatures of digital technology as a digitologist in New York City for the past 11 years.
Additionally, to find out the new direction of developing technology, he had been researching with social scientists of the department of information science in Cornell University from 2013 to 2015. To see the reality of e-waste matters, he, as a residency artist, worked in Gowanus E-waste Warehouse, which is owned by LES Ecology Center from 2014 to 2015. To find a proper way to maintain electric/electronic artworks, he, as one of technicians, has been helping to restore Nam June Paik’s video artworks in New York City from 2015 until now.
