Camella DaEun Kim is an artist and educator who moves fluidly between different media such as performance, installation, gaming and new media to address the problematics of communication and interpersonal relationships under conditions of globalization and technological ubiquity. Kim often allow for intuitive response, experimentation, playfulness, and humor in my work raising questions such as what it means to be connected, how we relate and/or ought to our environments and people, especially in the digital age.
Artistic project : No Losers
No Losers re-draws the boundaries between private and public space, especially in the gallery setting, while encouraging audiences to express their creativity in a public space. No Losers is an interactive public art installation that is a larger than life size scratch-off ticket. One brave participant is all that is needed to start scratching off the surface. Many others follow and quickly uncover the rest of the panel using coins, credit cards or their fingernails as a tool. This process reveals hidden messages and graffiti that have been collected from public restrooms and the internet which have been digitally altered. It also leaves creative traces of the participants who metaphorically and literally scratch off the surface. No one wins anything monetary; however, it creates a priceless means for strangers to communicate with each other.
