Choe’s digital still-image work Mad Park Metal Bikini is based on a recurring motif in the artist’s practice. Half robot half female form, rendered in what looks like watercolour, Mad Park Metal Bikini is a bizarre mix of techno-erotica and classic craftsmanship. There exist multiple renderings of the so-called Choebot, including several interpretations available as an iPhone application available on iTunes. The app allows consumers to superimpose Choe’s works onto their own photography and create their “personalised Choebots”.
David Choe lives and works in Los Angeles, California.
