Welcome to MaMuk
9-9:45 am, August 5, 2017 @ Gallery L, CICA Museum
I am building an open-ended utopian world called “MaMuk” where everyone exists without any prejudice, discrimination, and violence. I am unfolding MaMuk by marrying together my imagination and viewers’ feedback in the forms of a website/blog, novel, and magazine. The viewers become sources of the narrative, characters, and visual works. I hope my viewers will be participatory fans, as enthusiastic as those who follow a TV drama or a serial novel. They will express opinions and create derivative works to my fantasy world so that my work can continue to unfold endlessly without my presence. By MaMuk, I aim to connect with people with diverse backgrounds and help them, in turn, to connect, to understand and to empathize with each other.

Room: Digital Materiality 101
11 am -12 pm, August 4, 2017 @ Gallery L, CICA Museum
Kay Yoon is a new media artist based in Seoul, Korea and Nuremberg, Germany. She is currently studying at the Academy of fine Art in Nuremberg, Germany. By drawing the metamorphosis of nonliving organisms and digitizing them, the artist tried to reposition the digital materiality in art.
Nuremberg, where the artist lives, is considered to be among the most bombed cities in Germany during World War II. It shows how a culture has undergone a change in history. She has made her works by imprinting the remaining bullet marks in the cities with a plaster model and reconstructing it with a 3D program, and printing them with various sizes and colors.

I grew up in a fairly mundane, medium sized city in central Texas and was always more attracted to science fiction than fantasy. In my teens, I thought I would become an orchestral tuba player, but I gradually shifted to music composition and sound design, then instrument design, and more recently to audiovisual performance and gallery art. I am driven by the way that computation can synergize with and augment human performance and by a simultaneous misanthropy and hope for what humanity could become.
Technology must play a role in the future of human survival, but we also need to get back in touch with nature, and to leverage wild ecological processes in our infrastructure. Although humanity’s capability to know nature through sensors is more powerful than ever before, technology itself is a very thick lens, an intermediary structure that insulates us from the non-man-made. Most people are not using it to know the world more deeply, instead becoming distracted by addictive stimulation.
Technology is natural to humanity. How do we improve our degree of symbiosis? The Earth has already developed a zero-waste global life support system in the life-cycles of ecosystems. Moving forward, I want to delve more deeply into agriculture and ecology, into human growth and development, and into cybersecurity.
