Dawoon Park

Dawoon Park is a media artist and researcher born in South Korea and currently based in Germany. She studied Visual Communication Design in Seoul and New Media in Berlin. She is keen to work at the intersection of visual art, theory and practice. Her recent research focuses on the analysis of the hybrid spaces in between nature and culture and social relations of networks made up of human-nonhuman being and things. It takes the form of texts, performances, film and installations. Medium and materials are carefully selected according to the context of the philosophy and media theory on top of which her practice is grounded. Digital technology and electronic components make up a core part of her work.

Buddha of Capitalism

Buddha is not a god or truth, but a medium for delivering Buddhism to living beings and removing their suffering. Humans are neither god nor truth, but a medium for delivering capitalism to living beings, making them suffer whilst suffering from it.

The waves in the water bowl are connected to an largest American stock market index. If the market moves, the water starts moving. If the trading stops, the water stands still.

In Buddhist meditation, the calm sea is like a calm mind. When the sea is calm one can see through it, but in its rough state, nothing on the surface can be seen. The Mantra of Light is placed at the highest point in the house in the sense that the Buddha's teaching illuminates all living things.

Can the waves mirror the Buddha's teachings above it? Can we reach nirvana under capitalism?
