IRIS

HYBE

2012

Transmissive / Black Negative VA type LCD, Kinect, etc
For single module: 9×9cm For Installation: Variable Size

IRIS is an Interactive Installation that consists of LCD modules each of which mimics the functions and movements of the iris of eyes. An organic and unique screen is made by using black negative method VA type LCD modules. An image is implemented by control on the amount of light by switch gears that are composed of a circular pattern in the LCD modules. The work displays various shapes generated by gradational changes of black ink in a circular pattern, and presents a landscape dynamically in response to audience’s movements. This work transforms black and white display devices that had been used as a medium to simply deliver information for decades, combining halftone, which is one of the traditional techniques for image screening, newly with modern technology.

HYBE
HYBE (Hive for Hybrid Environment) is a group of new media artists who aim to create value through the use of creative media. HYBE studies and invents media that fuse technology with art and experiments with practicality, while connecting space and viewers. HAN ChangMin, the representative and creative director of HYBE, received his graphic Design B.F.A at the School of Visual Arts in New York and his Interactive Digital Media M.A at Ravensbourne College in London. Han seeks to break free from two-dimensional virtual frames and conduct interesting experiments that border on both art and technology based on actual physical space. At the heart of his experiments lie the direct participation of viewers and original experiences.
IRIS, which Han released through the Da Vinci creative, garnered much acclaim from overseas experts and press organizations in the field of media art.
