I am an artist using with time-based medias as a way to further explore the visual concepts first created in the 20th Century with the ever assimilating technology of the 21st Century. My background: Korean/British American, born in Japan, but on an American navy base. and grew up in the United States in the 1960s. As a mixed race family, my parents encountering racism from my father's American who lived in the eastern part of the US, resulting in my family's moved to the Southwest, leading me to grow up in Arizona in the 60s and 70s. Since I was the only identified Asian in my entire school district, all of the kids ignored me when not teasing me, and I became an observer. I started thinking I was a TV camera (not a movie camera) that was transmitting images to TV sets that could make sense of it all. When somebody turned to talk to me, it was like they broke the forth wall. They would startle me and I usually walked away without saying a word. I was an obsessive watcher of TV ( the weirder the show's premise, the better), and was always recording. First in my head, then on film, and then tape. Loved recording anything on cassette tape. I even recorded the audio of movies and the theaters and drive-ins I attended, as my love for Cinema grew. There was also the thrill of doing it without being caught, though it never occurred to me to sell anything. Eventually, I moved to New York which had many, many misfits that liked exploring sounds and recording visions. Sometimes together.
