Meet the Artist // Hwan Yun

Modern materials and technical solutions are eagerly explored. Both of these creative approaches exist in equal measure in Hwan’s work.

The 3D pen drawings/sculptures grow organically out of a dedicated use of protracted time. The repetitive gesture of the tangible marks presents the viewer with a participatory experience reflecting on the delicacy of the process.

Sound is the third, and in some ways most fundamental element, that Hwan deploys in his artistic synthesis. By embedding the triggering of sound directly into the construction of the work, Hwan invites the viewer to participate in a semi-magical experience where a simple touch reveals a hidden dimension to explore.

The technical details involve circuits and wires, sensors and vibration speakers that interweave with the visual aspects to form the inner workings of an object, which is both musical score and performer.
