Lisa Park is an interdisciplinary artist who is currently based in New York. Park is a recipient of NYFA (New York Foundation for the Arts) Fellowship in the category of Digital/Electronic Arts. She is selected to be a member of NEW INC, New Museum’s first museum-led incubator residency in art, technology, and design since Fall 2014.
Lisa Park has developed series of performances with using biosensors (brainwave, heart-rate devices) as a vehicle for manifesting her inner states. Lisa’s recent performances “Eunoia” and “Eunoia II” involved using a commercial brainwave(EEG) headset as a self-monitoring tool to measure her physical and psychological states. These performances obtained a real-time feedback of her emotional reactions. It was an investigation into a new form of expression and trans-sensory experience by visually and audibly reflecting her inner states into visible forms.
Her works were featured on Wired, The Creators Project, Hyperallergic, MIT Press ‘A Journal of Performance And Art,' The New York Times' Bits Blog, Time Out New York, New York Post, Daily News, PBS ‘Off Book Series’, MBC Documentary ‘Next Human,' and many other publications. She was also a collaborator with the Marina Abramovic Institute, specifically helping with its digital platform, IMMATERIAL, in the past.
She received a Master’s degree in the Interactive Telecommunications Program from New York University’s Tisch School of Arts and has a BFA in Fine Art Media at Art Center College of Design.Resume
