Originally from Thailand and now living in the US, I have reflected on ever-changing social, economic, and political situations, particularly in the framework of globalization. Carefully considering the history of a culture or a place, I analyze and synthesize these situations in order to develop artwork that reconsiders Thai identity. Through interactive media installations, I design systems for sharing and communicating that explore the transformation from fact‐based orientation to imagination. This parallels my own transformation as an artist working in the East and the West as well as my move from traditional to new media. Furthermore, it demonstrates a transmodal transformation that I argue is inherent in new media.
I consider my artwork, not only in terms of subject and media, but also in terms of function. I am particularly interested in intergenerational communication, and recognize myself as part—not the sole creator—of the social circuit I explore. I invite the audience to participate, to feel, to think, and to build their own experience through both old and new media. Through my work, I hope to connect with other people and discover something about my position in the world, by engaging a diversity of perceptions, uncovering cultural meaning as it affects our day-to-day lives.
