January 30-April 28, 2013
For PULSE 2013, Telfair presents the first solo museum exhibition by Hye Yeon Nam, a digital media artist working in performance video, experimental interaction design and games, and robotic installations.
Her work reflects the complexity of social relationships by making the familiar strange, and by interpreting everyday behaviors in performative ways. The exhibition includes the interactive robotic installation, Please Smile, in which five skeleton arms follow the viewer and point accusingly. Face tracking software changes this accusatory gesture to a friendly wave if the viewer smiles.
