In this Hyphen Hub event, multimedia artists Lisa Park and Melissa F. Clarke performed and talked about two fascinating works that exhibited themes of contact, personification and the manipulation of water.
Lisa Park is a multidisciplinary artist based in New York and South Korea. She is best known for her works with biofeedback devices, such as heart rate and brainwave sensors to express invisible biological signals and emotions as auditory and visual representations. In creating art installations and performances using sensors technology, she strives to explore the importance of human relationships and connections. For this salon, Park talked about her practice and research in the areas of physiological measurements as auditory and visual representations. She then presented Eunoia, an interactive performance, and installation that utilizes the artist’s states of consciousness-captured via her brainwaves to manipulate the motions of water.
Melissa F. Clarke is an interdisciplinary artist who works at the intersection of scientific research, data and art. For this salon, Clarke performed Ice Gouge, her sound piece, installation and performance that sources field recordings of glaciers that she recorded on an Arctic expedition to Greenland. In this mesmerizing sound performance that she created specifically for that evening, Clarke brought together broken glass, contact mics, water, metal, analog and digital effects as resonant objects, noise, field recordings and rock samples from her trips.
The night was guest curated and introduced by Chris Romero and was followed by a Q&A and drinks with the artists. Chris is a curator interested in time-based media. He lives and works in New York.
