Earl Park

Based on his personal familiarity with machinery, he explores diverse relationships between the human and the machine, questioning conventional limitations of words such as “machine-like” and “human-like,” thus expanding their boundaries while connecting them with seemingly antinomic definitions. He participated in exhibitions including Daejeon Biennale, Changwon Sculpture Biennale, ACT Festival, Artience Daejeon, Da vinchi Creative and Creators Project: Seoul. Also he designed and installed large-scale media art works as a member of ‘Media artist Group: Jonpasang’.
