Soyun Park is a digital artist working with image and interaction, originally from South Korea. She graduated in 2021 from the Graphic Design department of the Royal Art Academy in The Hague, where she is currently based. Her powerful and entrancing graduation work Wunderkammer 10.0, created in collaboration with Inwoo Jung and Yelim Ki, carried the viewer through an AI generated audiovisual journey exploring a post-apocalyptic data landscape. Inwoo Jung is a music producer and interdisciplinary artist from South Korea and based in Cologne who is also working under the alias of Wellsgoodness. The program of Proximity Music: Sensing After Thought features a premieré of their audiovisual collaboration Fantasia Realism, connecting the methods adopted by the surrealist during the early 20th century to current research in machine learning. In Fantasia Realism a machine learning system trained on fictional stories such as fairy tales, horrors and thrillers is used to generate a composition of visual and sonic material which the two artists then manipulate live in a theatrical performance. Fantasia Realism is supported by Arts Council Korea.
Proximity Music takes place from 8 - 10 April. Find out more here.
