Kim Nahee

Kim Nahee gathers images from her computer science studies and creates hybrid images that appear unsystematic and visually balanced at the same time. With the rise of the open source era, complex computer science technologies such as computer vision and machine learning have now reached a level at which they can be tested by anyone with basic knowledge about them. Kim Nahee takes full advantage of this improved accessibility to technology and tries to apply technology in the context of visual art. This is unconventional, given that today’s technologies were developed with focuses on academic excellence and economic efficiency. In Kim’s work, information technology is consumed as imagery or in ways unrelated to their original purposes. It is given the role of creating a visual balance or is adopted as an element that highlights “uncanniness,” in line with the purpose of her artistic practice. Kim’s utilization of technology stands far from improving efficiency, but the perplexity caused by this kind of “inefficient” use of technology is, in fact, what Kim wishes to highlight. Recently, Kim Nahee has been working on finding physical remains among the visual traces left behind by information technology.
