In his projects, Bundith Phunsombatlert’s explores media archeology. Through various forms of media, his artworks examine how new media technology can connect to past forms of media and their contexts, and subtly imbue everyday experiences with new layers of meaning. For him, “new” media can reveal a new meaning of something old, and can be defined by the ways in which each individual connects their personal background and cultural identity, allowing them to reinvent traditional interpretations of history.
Bundith Phunsombatlert has exhibited work at Auckland Triennial Institution; New Zealand; Guangzhou Triennial, China; and Asia Pacific Triennial of Contemporary Art, Australia, among others.bundithphunsombatlert.com

“Painting is my primary medium, though in practice, I am a conceptual artist. I use abstract visual forms and processes to explore systems of meaning and states of mattering.
I combine the concept and rule of the algorithm and execute it through forms and compositions that are organic, self generating, and have the unmistakable mark of the human hand. By creating conceptual order and structure within my works, I also create conditions for closure and completion. Each work creates and fulfills its own conditions; both my materials and I fulfill our designated roles in a calculated symbiosis.”
