TALK & DISCUSSION
TALK & DISCUSSION
Join us on Friday, 21st of April, for the presentation and showcase of the innovative work produced by our artist in residence Jin Lee during his 2-month residency at Thinker Maker Space.
In his work Lee explores the events occurring at the boundary between areas which seem to contrast each other, such as order and chaos, knowability and unknowability, certainty and uncertainty, technology, and nature. Thus he will discuss how he has been working on reducing vast and unpredictable natural domains into artificially controllable areas, using technological interventions to transform them.
Following the talk, the display of his project “Boundary between order and chaos” will be showcased in the exhibition area of Thinker Maker Space. In this project, the artist brings the turbulent flow, an uncontrolled and uncertain natural phenomenon, into one space and controls it with a machine, visualizing the controlled flow with smoke. Through Lee’s work, you will have the opportunity to explore the possibilities of understanding and control in the natural world and how science and technology can be utilized to expand our understanding of it.
Registration is only required for the artist talk as limited spaces are available. Registration & participation are free. The showcase is open to the public. No registration is required.
Jin Lee is a new media artist and designer who creates installations and interactive environments with computational systems and circuitry as medium. He studies phenomena that lie between order and chaos, creating work that belongs to neither and both, in which the unexpected is almost expected to occur. Drawing inspiration from patterns of everyday life, he uses the components of our technological surroundings to create moments of peace and nostalgia in quietly poetic spaces. His work has been shown internationally at festivals, galleries and art events in Germany, Swiss, Austria, Japan, China and Korea. He currently lives and works in Berlin, Germany.
