Cold Jumbles

 
Jinu Hong’s latest work implores viewers to blur the boundaries between sound, text, language, and video. Cold Jumbles is presented in three fragmented parts, all of which isolate a distinct moment in Jinu’s creative process, while remaining cohesive in their sense of play and transformation; a quality present throughout the entire project.

Speaking to this process, Hong reflects: “I was curious about what it is like to have a spontaneous conversation with myself or to come across a moment of vocal connection with myself.” Jinu recorded daily sound journals which captured whatever random thoughts and words came to mind. The parts of thought that, in the rapid movement of life “would otherwise be lost.”

The sound journals were then transformed: “Sound and time [were] chunked into phrases, randomly scrambled, flattened, transcribed, and frozen into a musical score.” The composition’s final iteration plays from an object we can never quite divorce ourselves from: the cellphone. But Jinu replaces the phone’s often jarring and high-pitched reminders with the cool sounds of artfully-rendered piano––a reprieve we can all aspire to.

He has been very much interested in physical intervention and connection taking place in the spur of the moment under certain instruction. He has also been exploring how graphic design physically and psychologically influences the way people interact with a place. He currently works independently with architects and artists on prints, videos, websites, and exhibitions.
