Taezoo Park is a new media artist based in New York whose work explores analog and digital technologies. Park pushes new artistic forms through his unique use of digital media, emphasizing the existent ‘character’ within an abandoned technology.

Park has been awarded "The Best Project" of the DUMBO Arts festival in 2014, and he has been researching into changing the notion of discarded technology with Cornell researchers since 2013.

His work has been featured at ABC news, BBC news, Continent, Gizmodo, SciArt, World Maker Faire, CHI(Computer-Human Interaction), SPRING/BREAK Art Show, Contemporary Art Fair NYC, New Museum Ideas City, Governors Island Art Fair, Portal Art Fair at Federal Hall National Memorial, Harvestworks, Ca’ d’Oro Gallery, Clemente Center, ACE Hotel, Cornell University, Pratt DDA Gallery, Pratt Manhattan Gallery, Lower East Side Ecology Center, Northside Festival, World Trade Gallery, Made in NY Media Center by IFP, and World Trade Center.
