My work is about concern the relationship between technology and human being, based on imagination inspired by nature when I child and experience of majoring oriental painting during my undergraduate years.
What I felt through the βMedia Cityβ exhibition in 2006 was that the principle of the new media is similar to the oriental philosophy which deals with uncertain but abundant metaphorical expression and the understanding of natural principles through the use of statistics and mathematics. This is similar to modern physics, especially quantum physics and superstring theory. Moreover my sister majored in biotechnology and when looking at her text book, I found similar concepts or contents between Oriental philosophy, physics, and life principles. For example, "keeping to the middle way" and the homeostasis of the body, the circulation of the human body and the circulation of "energy", and the electron and the proton and the yin-yang. These principles have influenced my work overall, such as "Nirvana of machine" and "The Circle", in which a digital machine is considered as an oriental philosophy or some organ of a creature. Above all, based on this idea, I try to understand the phenomenon and to expression to this while considering the role of art.
The geological name of the Anthropocene, which refers to the present era, is mentioned in 2016, and discusses how human beings have affected nature and the earth. The most talked about are environmental issues including global warming and high-tech under the logic of advanced capitalism. It is at the center of this discussion that I explore the problems associated with the process of data-izing any phenomenon. Bruno Latour point to the illusions and bubbles of science that emerged during the 19th century during the Copernican revolution. He criticized the unconditional belief and illusion that science can solve everything with technology. He also backed the belief that the digitization of the Earthβs information can help understand many kinds of phenomenon on the earth and can predict the future. Those who rely on science and technology, such as data scientists and intellectuals, have identified and determined important issues for the future, even though this data sometimes leads to misjudgements by concurring with capitalism and politics. Lastly, he said that the role of artists and intellectuals play in expressing phenomena as data is important.
Based on these discussions and my own thoughts, I am looking for a way to express data through metaphorical and open method, possibilities and diversity rather than quantifying phenomena. Through the exploration of data influences and methods of expressing data, we try also to openly question how to relate the impacts of technology on our lives, including capitalism, belief in technology, and the influence of data.
