RESEARCH INTERESTS

Research interests include drawing, painting, installation involving experimental video, and digital photography- more specifically, the fusing of these media, such as painting on a digital pigment print, video from a still image, and interactive installation with video footage. Engaging issues of Korean diaspora and cultural displacement, my creative works question how physical and psychological experiences of displacement affect and reshape a sense of identity in immigrant nomadic life. As a culturally displaced artist, I carry out an interview project and a series of drawing and paintings embodying immigrants’ stories and emotional resonances.
