I am a Korean American artist, writer and curator interested in interdisciplinarity, integrated approaches to healing and honesty, and structural social change. (In)visibility and (in)vulnerability, and world-generating dynamics of entanglement and of truthful paradox, recur as practices, tools or puzzles I explore in relation to my project-based work.
