On April 13 at noon, South Korean artist Ja-Young Ku will discuss his latest work at the Manassas Campus of Northern Virginia Community College. Ku is an associate professor of contemporary arts at Konkuk University in Seoul, South Korea. He is currently at Duke University as a Visiting Fulbright Scholar.
Ku’s lecture will cover the work in interactive media installation that he has completed during his Fulbright experience. “D910” is an interactive media work that draws hundreds of lines, all connected, floating around in a virtual space augmented with the image of the actual exhibition space. The viewer’s image is projected into the virtual space, then separated into two in time to subsequently interact with the lines.
The presentation is made possible by the Fulbright Scholar Program’s Outreach Lecturing Fund which enables Visiting Scholars to share their research interests, speak about their home country and exchange ideas with U.S. students, faculty and community organizations. Through these lectures, universities forge relationships with the Fulbright Scholar Program, Visiting Scholars, and the Visiting Scholar’s home and host institutions.
