Welcome Heejoon June Yoon

Skaftfell warmly welcomes Heejoon June Yoon artist in residence for the month of January. Heejoon June Yoon is an interdisciplinary artist and educator whose work aims to uncover the ecology of absurdity and abnormal settings within the contemporary society through audiovisual making. Yoon’s recent work focuses on the interplay between body, form and shape in relation to semiotic theory.
Inspired by how media technologies provide a new way of perception and communication, and a lot of miscommunications, she is making a series of landscapes and portraits of unknown lumps with A.I., collecting the machine’s algorithmic interpretation of her human-hand-drawings. She wants to make an installation as a proof of site of the non-existent scenery images. By actively responding to a digital image that mimics the representation of the scenery of the physical world, she aims to explore the multi-dimensional existence and the tangled hierarchy of real and virtual, and how it’s shaping our perception of the world.
