ABOUT

Lisa Park (b. 1987) is an American-born, Korean-raised artist living 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 an inaugural member of NEW INC, New Museum’s first museum-led incubator residency in art, technology, and design since Fall 2014.

In her recent bodies of works, Lisa has used biofeedback devices as a tool to investigate her inner states and emotional states. These performances explored the possibilities of self-monitoring her physical and psychological states to create an audio-visualization of herself.

Her works were featured on Wired, The Creators Project, Hyperallergic, MIT Press ‘A Journal of Performance And Art,' BBC's 'Technobabble', 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.
