New Silk Roads (NSR) is a multi-faceted urban research project that explores the nascent urban conditions emerging in rapidly expanding and transforming Asian cities and regions. Through a nomadic practice, Kyong Park has conducted a series of sequenced expeditions through transitional regions and cities between Istanbul and Tokyo, documenting his encounters of the people and landscape through photography, video, and audio/video interviews of local and international experts. The project is an examination of territorial conditions that constructs the interconnected system of the contemporary Asian landscape. Approaching urban cities as an ecology of built systems, structures and institutions, NSR presents alternate understandings of urban research and theory through artistic practice. NSR was first presented at Kyong Park: The New Silk Roads, at Museo de Arte Contemporaneo de Castilla y León in Spain (2009-10), and was undertaken with the support of the Graham Foundation, the Visual Arts Department, the Division of Humanities and Arts, Academic Senate Research Funds at University of California San Diego, and University of California's Institute for Research in the Arts (UCIRA).

WORKac to Speak at Graham Foundation
Oct 22, 2009
WORKac shapes ideas - inspired by difference and applying research, programmatic expansion and a surrealist's eye to translate concepts into new forms and experiences. We engage the world - with unprejudiced curiosity - to find within experience the grounds for meaningful practice. We embrace humor as a critical tool, allowing us to enter complex conditions with precision and insight. Our work strives to make 1 plus 1 equal 3, strategically shuffling given contexts, conditions and programs to reveal narratives and carve added public value. WORKac is an urban practice, for now is the time to re-address the city at all scales, building transdisciplinary networks of philosophers, scientists, artists, farmers? to better confront structures of power, create alternative universes and produce work that resonates with the contemporary condition.
