Hopeless Scoops
30 x 11 in.

I am interested in hybrid forms: bodies, aliens, and animal/human combinations. Born and raised in South Korea, I came to the US at age 22; so many things have changed in my life, and I feel like I am an alien in this society. My work responds to my feelings of nostalgia, alienation and solitude.

Currently, I make several kinds of hybrid objects with felt employing kitchen utensils. The hybrid forms show the devastation of the human soul in modern society.
