Artist Statement 

  ​​​     I am an artist who is interested in walking patterns on the streets, facial expressions, daily gestures and real human bodies. The quotidian is the extraordinary. Although what I create is strongly rooted in my identity as a Christian, Korean, movement researcher and other facets of my ‘ordinariness,’ my work is also fueled by the desire to see things from different perspectives and to communicate across those differences.
    

       While I celebrate the capacity of the body and the power of movement, I enjoy incorporating other mediums in my work. I have collaborated with illustrators, musicians and film-makers on various projects to date. I believe that these complementary mediums offer the audience a better understanding of the ideas that I examine through movement.
