Minha Park’s practice engages the genealogies of media and the politics of images, exploring how media technologies shape our world and produce sensory illusions. Her work, which spans experimental documentaries, video installations, concerts, and publications, decodes images and dissects the institutional knowledge and colonial gaze embedded in the macro visual system. Her poetic and magical documentaries focus on capturing and critically examining the phenomenon of media parasitizing on places or objects to create fantasy.
