American-born raised in South Korea, Lisa Park is a multidisciplinary artist who is currently based in New York. 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.
She explored different genres in painting, sculpture, photography, and film during her education with an extensive background in fine art. Over the past few years, her interest in New Media Art (a genre that encompasses artworks including digital art, computer graphics, virtual art, Internet art, interactive art, video games, computer robotics, and biotechnology) has influenced her art practice to focus on creating performative-based interactive installation.
She has been interested in the application of neurofeedback’s method to analyze and understand human emotions. Her recent works explored the possibilities of self-monitoring her physical and psychological states through the use of biometric sensors (heart-rate and brainwave sensors). The latest performance involves using the commercial brainwave sensor, EEG (electroencephalogram), to create an external representation of herself. Her works were featured on The Creators Project, The New York Times' Bits Blog, Time Out New York, New York Post, Wired, Daily News, PBS' Off Book Series, and Intel’s Make it Wearable video, and many other publications. Other collaborations with The Moving Company (Tamar Ettun, Tyler Patterson, Tina Wang, Maia Karo) were published by Huffington Post, Hyperallergic, and Vogue.com.
She is a current member of New Inc, New Museum’s first museum-led incubator in art, technology, and design. During her one-year tenure at New Inc, she attempts to create public sculptures and a neurofeedback participatory installation that explore themes of harmony and collaboration by using EEG technology. She also has been a collaborator with Marina Abramovic Institute since fall 2013.Resume
