Hwayong Jung's "Euphoria"
September 11 - September 24, 2014
Opening Reception: Thursday, September 11, 6-8pm
This event is free and open to the public.
Euphoria delicately reflects on the collapse of nature and the unique visual language of technology. The video gathers aesthetic forms and patterns found in our environment and recreates them using computer simulation. Code-generated terrain, endless mazes and ruptured images transform and blend into a giant organism that continuously changes and reproduces, giving rise to a new digital scene. This mesmerizing virtual sphere has no beginning and no end.
