A series of explorations on repetition, isolation and decontextualization.
Nojisu is an artist working and making in Seoul, South Korea. He currently works across a range of mediums with the processes, thinking and methods sitting at the happy intersection of design, digital and analogue. His work is often an examination of what one might call the day-to-day, the mundane or the quotidian. Sometimes this takes place as formal investigations of everyday life. These examinations often explore some of the visual experiences of these everyday elements. In this examination process, Nojisu often asks questions about some of these visual experiences or aspects and in turn, these questions become visual themselves. He is currently fascinated with the idea of slow or inefficient. Particularly in Seoul, where there is a perpetual push for optimization, speed and standardization, at what points might one benefit from slowing things down? Part of these recent investigations center around the idea of craftsmanship, or digital craftsmanship and where analogue means of making may benefit computer processes. Or vice versa. Nojisu is a graduate of the University of California at Berkeley and the Rhode Island School of Design.
