Jason seeks to subvert the dominant language in digital technology, which excludes the artist’s Korean name, “Jisoo.” Digital devices and platforms have perpetually autocorrected her name to “Jason” since immigrating to the United States to study art. Using her hand to narrow the view, as if an aperture of a camera, Jisoo Chung creates vignettes that capture unassuming subjects—random male pedestrians on the streets of Los Angeles. This voyeuristic gaze aligns with the video’s narration, which includes various descriptions about “Jason,” collected from online profiles and the artist’s own imaginings. Jason evokes feelings of isolation, disembodiment and otherness that immigrants experience when their identities are renamed through autocorrection, mispronunciation or outright dismissal. Jason has been adapted for WE RISE 2021.
