When translating Korean to English, there are nuances lost in between the languages. The problem lies beyond our hardware. Our ports might be incongruent and our software slightly incompatible but we are made from the same parts. So why do I fail to communicate with them?

Digital Diaspora:

This work redefines the term
“diaspora,” a phrase used to describe
people who are living somewhere else
other than their birthplace.

Outdated(오래된) was a selected work in the group exhibition Preservation and Permanence InterAccess Gallery, curated by Amanda Low and Tommy Truong. This show considers loss in the age of rapid technological obsolescence. Given the speed at which digital media is developed and navigated, information loss has become inevitable.
