INTER. Act, Reciprocity in Media, curated by Changhak Choi, as part of the Lori Ledis Emerging Curator Program, will examine the modern reciprocal relationship that can take place between ubiquitous multimedia technology and human emotion in both physical and virtual reality, through the work of interactive media artists.

The work exhibited in INTER. Act by Brooklyn artists Sue G. Syn, and Hwayong Jung offers visitors experimental moments and furthers a discussion over new definitions and potentials of multimedia.

Today, living in a contemporary city entails simultaneously experiencing as well as producing a multiplicity of exchanges of matter, material and immaterial, within various reciprocal systems – social, technical, political, economical. The ubiquity of smartphones and similar cutting-edge personal computing devices, combined with the pervasive use of social media, is accelerating this exchange to an even greater extent. These technologies allow an individual to be active and passive; dominating and dominated. Moreover, power is also no longer centralized; it is dispersed and allocated to the end-user, who can interact anywhere, whether in real or virtual space.

The use of interactive media technology in art creates the perfect reciprocal medium to communicate and comment on everyday life while emphasizing socio-cultural issues. Inter. Act, Reciprocity in Media addresses how art communicates through interaction. New digital technology provokes a repeated experience between the art work, artist, audience, and surrounding space, in reciprocal ways. At the same time, the works featured in Inter. Act remain incomplete and undefined; evolving through continued public engagement and exploring new methods of communication between artist and audience.
