The Apollo 40 Under 40 Asia Pacific | In Focus: Heecheon Kim by Andy St. Louis

Congratulations to Heecheon Kim, who has been selected as one of ten artists shaping the future of art in Apollo Magazine’s 2022 edition of “40 Under 40 Asia Pacific.”
 
“In the eyes of South Korean artist Heecheon Kim, modern technology is not concerned with producing images. Instead, ‘the goal of developers is how to make technology invisible so that you cannot distinguish between the technologically-mediated environment and your real world.’ In his video-art practice, Kim poses insistent questions about the nature of our digital selves by adapting mainstream electronic software such as GPS trackers, AR image filters and VR environments to triangulate the convergence of consumer technology, mass media and Internet culture. ‘I feel like there are two selves,’ he says, ‘and the biggest theme in my work is: how can I be myself in this era?’”
