Siyon JIN

Born 1971 Gwangju, Korea. Lives and works Gwangju

New Forms (2016) is a video work inspired by the hectic existence of city-dwellers and how they communicate using vast digital social networks. Siyon Jin visualises these networked urban citizens as ‘entities of light’ that form glowing, multi-coloured trails that stream through physical and virtual space.
Jin created the images in his video by attaching LEDs (light emitting diodes) to flexible costumes worn by two dancers, whose movements were then captured and traced, outlined by the numerous points of illumination.
The video is projected onto two MCA building windows at night during the exhibition.
