Gim Jeongtae

Gim Jeongtae tests the potentials of digital materials. As an artist of the “black mirror” generation, Gim materializes such potentials either experimentally or experientially as he creates, shares, or produces images within the context of computer science. Gim’s digital painting and VR projects navigate through both the digital and physical spaces, and they point to renewed perceptions on how paintings should exist and how the virtual and real spaces are understood. Untitled is a series of digital paintings which presents reprocessed images of the three-dimensional space extracted from PICO, another digital work of the artist. PICO consists of a rectangular frame placed at the center, set against the backdrop of an imaginary landscape. The image that fills up the frame at the center is created by collecting sources from the Internet, and then mixing up the pixels of the original image. These combinations of landscapes and frame images continuously construct new imagery in this virtual space. Gim Jeongtae’s VR project draws our attentions to the sense of discrepancy that arise from the differences between a real space and a virtual space, as well as experiences common to the two despite the differences.
