As part of its first issue, Eyeball webzine presents work by Korean media-artist Park Chan-kyung. A graduate of Seoul National University, Western Painting Department and California Art Institute, Park has worked consistently in media-art since 1997.
Park’s approach to media-art is cinematic, rather than visual and technical: he associates film into his work by appropriating filmic grammar and language.

Park’s recent work Flying presented at The International Short Film Festival in Oberhausen early this year. Overseas, media art is common to film festivals and in cinemas, but domestic Korean media artists seldom have the chance to screen work in such places. With it Park shows relations between the two Koreas, the only divided nation in the world.

It features a South Korean delegation from June 2000, including the then President Kim Dae-jung, flying to North Korea along a direct air route between Seoul and Pyeongyang, to participate in a summit meeting. Appropriated from one hour of broadcasts from the time, Flying is 10 minutes long.

Its background music is Double Concerto, 197 by Yoon I-sang, whose return to S. Korea was discouraged by the authority concerned and who died eventually in Germany, an adaptation of the legendary love story involving Gyeonwoo and Jiknyeo, forced to be apart form each other. Park’s intention here is to overlap the German experience of division with Korea’s ongoing history. So when Flying presents in a local film festival, he may finally attain his goal of entwining the locality and universality of his art.
Park’s Flying is not away from the frame of typical media art appropriating existing images, plus functions as a documentary to draw social, political attention.
