Media: A Collection of Video Art from Los Angeles  


Kyungmi Shin | "Running Baby", 2002

Media: Video, Polyurethane and Mixed Media
Dimensions (HxWxD): 24"x24"x24" & 30"x24"x24"

1) First Element: A TV monitor plays a video of a toddler running around in circles. In MEDIA, I had a headset for the sound, but ideally I would like to have the sound as ambient so the viewer can hear the toddler screaming/uttering "Ahhhhhh!" as they enter the space the piece occupies.

2) Second Element: A mannequin whose physical features and clothing mimic the toddler in the video. Itís stopped in mid action, about to take another step and its mouth open wide. Itís slightly larger than life. This mannequin is to be placed strategically in relation to the TV monitor.
