Location: The Red Door, 140 W 24th St, New York, NY 10011
In this Hyphen Hub Salon, multimedia artists Lisa Park and Melissa F. Clarke performed and talked about two fascinating works exhibiting themes of contact, personification, and the manipulation of water.
Lisa Park is a Korean artist, living and working in New York. Her work uses technology to create intimate environments and experiences that trigger emotional states and reflections. For the Salon, Park performed “Eunioia”, a unique performance that utilizes the artist’s states of consciousness –captured via her brainwaves—to manipulate the motions of water.
Melissa F. Clarke is an interdisciplinary artist who works at the intersection of scientific research, data, and art. For this Hyphen Hub Salon, Clarke performed "Ice Gouge"—her sound piece, installation, and performance that sources field recordings of glaciers that she recorded on an Arctic expedition to Greenland. In this piece, glass, contact mics, water, metal, analog and digital effects as resonant objects, noise, field recordings, and samples come together.
The night was guest curated and introduced by Chris Romero and was followed by a Q&A and drinks with the artists.
