Biography

Taeyoon Kim captures relative time and movement through video and sound. Theartist collects images and sounds and codes it to generate and repeat within a specific system. Kim focuses on abstraction of movement by compiling real-time images, social data, wind velocity, and direction and transmitting it as a new image, or filming a falling ping pong ball from various angles and cross-editing them on to nine channels. The main subject is removed from physical movements such as flow, fall, spin, and recoil to reveal scenes that construct the footages. Blurred ambiguous images roam the screen, only leaving traces of colors, patterns, and sounds. Order of time disappears, and movement existing in abstract form create a new narrative. Deviated from linear time, the images in the videos sometimes display distinct movement, which resembles the artist's sound works.
