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 2 (窓-間의 풍경 2)

The Window is used as a metaphor for the spatial imagery in cyberspace in that a user can jump from one page to the next. —The window originally as an architectural element physically separates and connects the outside and the inside.
The movie starts with showing the window of the artist's residence in Berlin in which self-isolation was underway in the time of Covid-19 and subsequently travels between(間) Windows(窓) in doing performative manipulations in web conferencing systems such as BigBlueButton and FaceTime.
The poem cited by a text-to-speech technology in the course of the movie has been reinterpreted by using a Window motif in order to reveal the conditions of the lives of users in cyberspace. —The original, 'Mirror' by Yi Sang, as an avant-garde poem, experimented separation from inside one's self as well as the outer world as a modern humans mentality.
