BananaMilk (2002) is a collection of miniature interactive web-based videos inspired by the approach of pop artists such as Robert Rauschenberg and James Rosenquist, who sought to stress all that was wonderful or ambiguous in the most ordinary objects. The work derives from experiments with putting visual art online, and realising that the web changes the very nature of imagery. In response, the works take inspiration from magazines, television, cinema, everyday life experience and old memories. The works juxtapose an archive of mass media images and abstract sounds to propose a deeper, ironic mystery in popular and historical events.
Sangbum Kim is an artist and interactive designer. He was born in Seoul, Korea and is currently working in Des Moines, Iowa.
