I am an installation artist living and working in Brooklyn, New York. I was born in 1982 in Seoul, South Korea. I recently graduated with a M.F.A in Fiber Art from Cranbrook Academy of Art located in Bloomfield Hills, Michigan in 2013. Now I am participating in a residency at the Brooklyn Art Space, Brooklyn, New York. I am especially focusing on creating negative volume by using the achromatic lines, representing the space by division and proportion, and making the shape and contour. The strings give volume, movement, gravity and density. I am curious to imagine the abstract form in the empty space and actually do it in the space. They create numerous faces and optical illusion. I am trying to make a live op-art installation in the space with strings and build my imagination in the space.
