Taeyoon Choi creates
performance and media projects using human body in relation with moving
image, site, and time. He presented series of controversial happenings
about culture and violence in both public and gallery settings with
the team Jangseung, a multinational artist group formed in Chicago.
His travel-diary video series in 2002~2004, ‘Express to nowhere,’
are about foreign countries seen through the eyes of a cultural tourist.
His recent experimentations with locative media and wearable computer
deal with the issues of locality and object of desire. Collaboratively
with Interactive & Practice (a team of artists, engineers and
researchers from other disciplines) at the Art center Nabi, he developed
urban game using camera phone; ‘Shoot me if you can’ and
psychogeographic experiment; ‘Sell your morning walk’.
In ‘Shoot me if you can’ participants are ought to take
a photo of opponent team member and send it to the gamer server via
MMS. It is inspired by first person shooting game and possible violence
use of surveillance camera.
recent performance, ‘Object of desire’, was about camera
phone users as an everyday tourist and their desire to photograph
using wearable computer system with multiple webcams triggered by
heartbeat. Human perception of space, cognitive mapping, and global
issues are inspiration for locative media projects.
Choi and the team Jangseung is currently working on a new project:
Movable Types and Instant Spaces, a wearable architecture project
inspired by movable structures in Korean urban area. The project will
be exhibited at the Container Culture exhibit in ISEA 2006 San Jose.
Choi has B.F.A in Performance at the School of the Art Institute of
Chicago. He is currently researching as a M.S student in Culture Technology
at the Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology. He currently
lives and works in Seoul, Korea.
