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.

This group was formed with the intention of continuing with research, experimentation and creation processes around the sun as a conceptual axis and main source of problematization and energy. The processes carried out so far have focused on the development of sound artifacts from electronic components and light sensors that use solar energy as the main source of operation. However, sunlight as a resource is not limited to the central power supply of the artifact. Due to the sensors that integrate the instruments, the change of intensity and the transition from light to shadow vary the tonalities of the sound, creating a landscape of the solar condition that is modified to the rhythm of the movement of the body, the sun and the hours.
