Class of 2021

I started my art practices in sculpture, video and object making, in thinking of how I live in the in-between space of physical environment and screen, solid objects and light/image. With video installations in/about specific settings, such as restroom, office building, and ticket booth, I tried to explore the many layers of environment, from its physicality to digitality, and how one’s attention and consciousness transitions between these layers. The thoughts of our relation to screens and images led me to be more aware of digital spaces, internet and digital bodies such as online profiles, characters and avatars. Recently I am making works to explore our relationship to our digital avatars, and how the digital bodies exists in the intersectional and transitional space of physical and digital, subject and object.
