Taezoo Park

Korean-born New York based artist, Taezoo Park is a digital artist whose work explores analog and digital technologies. Park pushes new artistic forms through his unique use of digital codes, emphasizing the existent ‘character’ within an old and new technology. He calls it “Digital Being”.

Park is working on art that asks questions about the emergence of new digital technologies, the bright and dark sides caused by them, and their sustainability. To express this, he mainly works to make something new by grafting digital codes to discarded machines or found objects. Also, he works to connect the digital and analog worlds technically and semantically.

Along with him, “Digital Being” was introduced by ABC news, BBC news, Artnet, ACM SIGGRAPH Digital Arts Community, ACM SIGGRAPH Asia, World Maker Faire, CHI(Computer-Human Interaction), SPRING/BREAK Art Show, Governors Island Art Fair, Lower East Side Ecology Center, Made in NY Media Center by IFP, AFA Gallery, Sylvia Wald and Po Kim Gallery, and World Trade Center.

Currently, his recent interactive installation, “Digital Being: Rebirth”, is on display at the 3 World Trade Center from November 2020 to now.
