Digital Dish @ Ljudmila: Nedine Kachornnamsong

LJUDMILA and MoTA - Museum of Transitory Art present: Digital dish lecture "Monitor and Display: an image of the Ghost in the Machine" by our artist in residency Nedine Kachornnamsong

DATE: Wednesday, December 9th 2009 - at 19:00 - Ljudmila, Rimska 8, Ljubljana

By looking into the ‘essence of technology’ as a ‘mode of revealing’ (1), the lecture will explore possibility of technology and the change in our society as a source to understand human being. The main finding will be in the area of digital and online communication. This is because the way Human Computer Interaction (HCI) has been constructed within digital media requires us to reach to the higher stage of abstraction in order to facilitate the tools. Furthermore, our state of being in the world has its own fluidity, it precludes us from thoroughly understand the ‘ontology of the physical world’ (Jacobsson 2000), the help from new communication structure on cyberspace somehow, gives us a clear view toward our own behaviour.

To illustrate how the meta-abstraction was created from the use of digital communication tools and how could we apply it into a study of human social interaction, the lecture will explain how the metaphor used in Graphical User Interface (GUI) sets the digital media in a meta-abstract communication level. An example Nedine Kachornnamsong’s the installation project at Copenhagen Airport will be given to demonstrate an opportunity to apply the nature of online social interact into the contemporary art context. The lecture will further explore the new possibility to implement some elements of online dating interaction within the on going project during artist in residence program at Ljudmila and MoTA.

Nedine Kachornnamsong (TH/SE 1980) was born in Bangkok, Thailand. After receiving her M.Sc. in IT Product Design in Denmark, she continued to explore in the area of contemporary art as a means to question the suspended relationship between the being and the world. Since 2006 she has been living and working in Sweden. She completed her MFA at Valand School of Fine Arts, Sweden with her specialization in new media art. Focusing on social interaction, spatial condition and tangibility, her works reveal a state of contemporary. By conducting research-in-practice, she is anticipated to implement an interaction as a medium for poetic reflection. Currently, she is working on the questions related to a possibility to integrate the online representation and experience into the corporal environment. Free entrance.
