February 6, 2015 @ 6:00 pm– March 21, 2015 @ 5:00 pm ESTFree

Sang Jun, Yoo is a new media artist based in United Sates and South Korea. In search of artistic forms in phenomenology and self-consciousness that transcend genres in design and art fields, his projects engage visible and invisible matters in between people and their surroundings, such as dialogues in a loss of certain way of seeing, making apparentness, and particular feelings created by a coincidental approach. Sangjun has designed interactive installations in both digital and physical spaces to amplify human relationships by traveling superficial layers of reality.
Statement from the Artist:
Although light makes everything visible, light itself is not usually noticed because we see things reflected against it. When I look toward the sun, everything in my vision turns into visible and invisible. This is nature’s rule: an object is only visible when light reflects it. Under the light source, every subject is illuminated in human perception because light amplifies our vision. Ultimately, relationship between light and shadow becomes the threshold of human perception. A sheer curtain wall slowly rocks by a wind current. Light reflects the moving curtain wall, and makes the curtain visible. A low breeze sound and a stream of reflection drive the viewer’s motivation to discover their distance to the light.
Opening Reception, February 6, 6:00pm. Artist talk at 7:00pm.
On view until March 21.
