Semi Art Community Project: Boo Gie Woo Gie Art Museum
Cobayashi participates in a group exhibition curated by Korean photography magazine “CHALKAK”.
What is the ‘photos, images’ today? The beginning of photography was a medium for “recording,” but today’s photography is a “means of expression” and a “tool of amusement.” Image, who are the people creating the new trend when the axis moves from the “era of quality” to the “era of quantity”. What kind of culture were they born in, what kind of future or what kind of today are they living in?
Today’s photographs and images are chasing extreme mise en scène based on the quantitative energy of the overflowing images. Growing up with multiculturalism since born in 1990-2000, they are fully embodying the digital platform ecosystem and pouring out images and images optimized for the media environment. This is what gets the spotlight on the current generation and the current world, which are accustomed to synesthesia and multi-sensitivity. The world they show is not an extension of the past historical classification or genealogy, but images that will ask a new question that can take a step further from the past question of “What is photography?”
