Media artist Nahee Kim, who has focused on the interaction between machines and human, sets up human senses as electronic devices, hacks them, and thinks about how to reorganize them.
Sximulation is a project that views this process through a story of “reproduction.” Monitors installed in the exhibition space each denote a living organism. Kim postulated that any contact made with these “living organisms” leads to reproduction, and programmed the “reproductive process” based on figures and codes. Figures generated on monitors signify the state of the organisms’ senses and mental condition. These values change upon contact with other “living organisms.” Also, depending on the receptors’ coordinate settings, the strength of stimulation changes and is reflected in the figures.
