In February this year EWHA Womans University in Seoul hosted the The Distortion Field, a new annual conference and an exhibition organised by EWHA’s Cross Media Lab. The event was curated by Kimchi and Chips in collaboration with CAN, with intention to investigate the effect of audience’s participation upon artist’s intention through a series of talks, performances and exhibited work.
Part of the exhibition was the work of Jihoon Byun, a media artist whose work explores formative characteristics of electronic media. His past work includes interactive installations such as ‘Deuk-um(2012)’ and net-art pieces such as ‘Wind(2006)’ and ‘Haeundae(2008)’ and has exhibited in Seoul International Media Art Biennale in Korea, Experimental Vanishing Point in Australia, National Review of Live Art in UK, and Printemps Perfume(Chunhyang) in France. For the The Distortion Field, Jihoon has prepared an exhibition with series of works exploring the subject of drawing images in the space around the earth using latitude, longitude and altitude as a coordinate system.
