Terry Ryu Kim’
Terry Ryu Kim’s work deals with themes connected to the use and construction of public space. Referencing structures in architecture through to profiling and identification using computers and surveillance, her work utilizes a diverse range of media to explore the sites and technologies that we inhabit and exist amongst. Her latest work explores a blurring or transposition of notions of fiction and reality in everyday life. Juxtaposing the Si-Fi film Gattaca with a live augmented reality video feed of exhibition visitors faces rendered into coordinate data by a facial recognition program, the install shifts the viewers in and out of these two different projective spaces, questioning the extent to which the construction of fictions in film, advertising, mass media, and profiling on screens seeps into and becomes part of the reality of our lives.
