Eum-Space, Nam June Paik Art Center

Nam June Paik Art Center presents an exhibition titled Neurospace by Park Seungsoon from July 18, 2019 for the first part of the 2019 Random Access Project. Many landscapes of sound that we face in our daily life are never the same and are interpreted differently depending on one’s own memories and experiences. How would you hear the landscape and describe the sound? The exhibition Neurospace highlights the correlation between sound and perception, the difference in hearing and perceiving the landscape as well as the mechanism in which humans and computers recognize the landscape of sound in their own ways. The exhibition presents a landscape as a ‘neuro space’ in which senses and perceptions interact with each other in the exhibition.
Park Seungsoon who mainly works with music and sound has explored the way humans interact with nature or the universe. The artist has created a variety of works on the correlation between hearing and perception, the possible errors caused by AI and the mechanism in which humans and computers perceive landscapes of sound in different ways using a deep learning algorithm.
