[ISEA2016] Artist Statement: Jinsil Hwaryoung Seo — Immersed

Artist Statement

Animation, 2015, 2’22”, ISEA2016 Hong Kong Open Sky Project Honorable Mention

“Immersed” is a video installation specifically created for the Open Sky Project in Hong Kong. This project transforms the ICC LED Façade to a huge water tank where color inks create nice swirling patterns while they get mixed in the water. Audience may feel immersed and relaxed from the dynamic movements of water. We acknowledge immersion as a primary aesthetic phenomenon because the immersive experience is fundamental to our senses, realized through bodily interaction in its wholeness. Immersion in this project means that mind, body and environment interweave and communicate with each other through the technically mediated and illusionary space.
