Jayoung Chung

(South Korea)

I am an interdisciplinary artist who will create a fusion of drawing, composition, and performance inspired by the notion of Martin Buber: "I become through my relation to the Thou. All real living is meeting." I investigate the relationship between people and nature, finding within our surroundings a means to tell all human stories. My work is based on the symbiosis of art and technology, using my awareness of the natural world as a gateway to explore “Empathy.” Ocean waves and symbols of passing seasons have emerged as one of my central artistic themes, a metaphor for the circularity of time.
