My artwork combines East Asian traditional crafts and new media, forming a hybrid genre focused on immersive experiences. My work employs Orientalist aesthetics, exploring the specific dynamics of East Asia’s history of hierarchical social structures through a feminist lens. Some of the crafts I use in my work include traditional Korean embroidery, costumes or clothing and accessories, these are combined with 3D animation, video game interaction and wearable technology.
