I am a Korean-born immigrant to Canada. I then moved to England to study, revisited Korea, and returned to Canada. For the last several years, I have been traveling between Canada, Europe, and Korea. The idea of alien, in relation to those of isolation, displacement, and trace, has been a central point of reference in the formation of my sense of identity. Although my education is largely formed from a Western point of view, I pursue the natural world of matter in Ninding my sense of self, beyond all cultural frames that have conNined me. Improvisation has become my method for art and for life.
