Zerogram : Bumgyun Shin, Hayoung Bae, Haeun Song
Zerogram, an artistic community of 3 (Bumgyun Shin, Hayoung Bae, Haeun Song), is focused on how to engage in relationships and behaviors in the digital age. The world of Zerogram’s works utilizes kitsch visuals and begins with visual metaphors of reality. But on the web and in virtual spaces, the stories of the artists and the audience are continuously reproduced. In the end, the virtual world becomes a wholly different dimension of reality in itself.
