SEICA Human Interaction Labs —

Member Since April 17, 2011

Laura Hyunjhee Kim is a Korean-American multimedia artist who renders familiar physical experiences into fabricated (non)existent spaces that reimagine digital culture and virtual living. Playfully engaging with the Do-It-Yourself amateur aesthetics of the Internet, she utilizes consumer electronics in production and draws inspiration from viral memes, lo-fi pop music, narrative found-footage film, and kitschy low-budget commercials. In recent projects, she explores emerging trends and patterns in ubiquitous consumer-grade technology to capture the underlying dreams and desires that continue to influence human life and existence. She is the Founding Director of the virtual organization, Synthetic Empathic Intelligent Companion Artefacts (SEICA) Human Interaction Labs (seicalabs.org).
