Michael Joo
American, b. 1966
Follow

Korean-American conceptual artist Michael Joo manipulates a wide array of unexpected materials, from antlers and human sweat to fiber optics and magnets, to explore places, people, and objects by reinterpreting perception, asking, “Why do we perceive as we perceive?”. Amid a profusion of themes and styles, certain natural and spiritual motifs emerge, particularly animals and the Buddha. For example, in Bodhi Obfuscatus (Space Baby) (2005), a stone Buddha statue wears a halo of interconnected cameras, which then project close-ups of the Buddha onto screens mounted in the space around the statue.
