Gil Kuno

Through careful social conditioning, the mind is guided to think within certain patterns. Gil tries to redirect the flow of the mind outside of the set patterns we are taught by society to construct. In his work, he attempts to displace natural activity from its context, revealing an otherwise hidden level of metaphorical absurdity within the ordinary patterns present before our eyes.
The goal of sublimating everyday perception underlies many of the projects he has exhibited or performed. He aims to push people away from paradigmatic thinking through various themes and methodologies – aleatoric systems (chance operations,) exaggerated perception, derailed reality and re-envisioning experiences common within everyday life.
Gil received his MFA at UCLA. He has achieved recognition from Ars Electronica, Japan Media Arts Festival, Canon Digital Creators Contest, Timothy Leary (Leary.com), among others.
His recent work, “Six String Sonics, The” ranked second place in a public survey held by the Japanese Government for “Top 100 Japanese Media Art Works”. This resulted in an exhibit at Japan’s largest contemporary art museum, The National Art Center, Tokyo. In the summer of 2012, Gil debuted the performance in the U.S. at the Fringe Festival NYC. www.unsound.com
