 박소진 So Jin Park 


(ENG) Park studied French and English literature in Seoul. She discovered her passion in Germany, moved to Berlin and finally began studying graphic design at Burg Giebichenstein University of Art and Design Halle. "Apolitical things are generally of no interest to me", says Park. Against this background, her work deals with 39,000 kilometers of Internet cables, discriminating algorithms and stories.

Based on text by Form magazine (issue 284)


(DE) Park studierte französische und englische Literatur, entdeckte ihre Passion für Deutschland, zog nach Berlin und fing schließlich an der Burg Giebichenstein Kunsthochschule Halle an, Grafikdesign zu studieren. „Unpolitische Dinge sind im Allgemeinen uninteressant für mich“, so Park. Vor diesem Hintergrund beschäftigt sie sich in ihren Arbeiten mit diskriminierende Algorithmen, Geschichten und 39.000 Kilometer langen Internetkabeln.
