Daun Bak

Daun Bak (1991, South Korea) has researched and materialised art projects in terms of the impact of media and the digital environment on the human mind, behaviour and condition. She aims for catching glimpses of increasingly complex phenomena in between material and immaterial things and encodes them into the realm of the legible and visible.
She received a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in Visual Communications Design from the Dankook University in Yongin, South Korea and she currently studies master's degree in New Media at the Berlin University of the Arts (UdK) in Germany.

Scenery Between-Windows 1 (窓-間의 풍경 1)

In the time of Covid-19, in contrast to limited reality, the digital environment set up radical openness and deregulation, so anything that interferes with communication is eliminated.
Time is replaced by real-time, space is replaced by hyperlinks, and humans exist as images.
時間(Time) - 間(between) = 時(o'clock)
空間(Space) - 間(between) = 空(Void)
人間(Human) - 間(between) = 人(Individual)
(時間 - 時) + (空間 - 空) + (人間 - 人) = 間間間(between-between-between)
間間 means 'on and off' in Korean. Life relying on only the endless concatenating 'on and off' digital signal is ever-changing, thus, unstable and insecure. The window reflects ‘The Loss of Time, Space and Humanity', observed in a limited real life and in the digital environment.
