As an artist in Thailand for the past decade and now in the US, Bundith Phumsombatlert has reflected on ever-changing social, economic, and political situations, particularly in the framework of globalization. He seeks to analyze and synthesize these issues within the context of history to form art that rethinks Thai identity in the world. Working in a range of materials, from hand-made printmaking and multiple sculptures to interactive installations controlled by computer systems, he seeks a conceptual and aesthetic space between visual art and media art.
