Created by Karolina Sobecka, Jeff Crouse and with some help from Nick Hardeman, Paik Times Five was part of the one-night exhibition Infinite Loop, organized by the New Museum and curated by Lauren Cornell (Rhizome) in Seoul, South Korea.
Paik Times Five was one of the three specially commissioned interactive video installations premiering at the event. Rafaël Rozendaal and Scott Snibbe created the other two installations, and a curated program of single channel videos was displayed on the world’s largest LED screen. Karolina and Jeff’s piece generates imagery from the viewer’s movement: each person leaves behind them graphic traces. Various media are the raw material for this imagery — the viewer ‘paints’ the space with colours and textures of those videos. Each time the viewer lowers his or her arms, the source video changes to another, picked at random from a library of different video sources. When nobody is present in the interaction area, the installation goes into idle mode.
