Yeseul Song is a South Korean born and New York based artist, researcher, and educator working at the intersection of art and technology. She creates experimental sculptures, interactive installations, digital sketches, and audio visual performances to examine the fluid nature of human perception and its relationship with our society and the environment. She uses technology as a means of augmenting or enhancing the human condition, which allows her work to engage audiences in unexpected and playful ways.
She is currently an Inaugural Fellow at NYU Tisch School of Arts' Future Imagination Collaboratory and Adjunct Faculty at NYU Tisch’s Interactive Telecommunications Program (NYU ITP). She is working on projects that explore the use of technology for a sustainable future with her interest in creating new ways for people to empathize with and learn about environmental issues. In Spring 2020, she’s teaching a new course titled Intangible Interaction.
She is the recipient of Communication Arts Interactive Annual, iF Design Award, and a nominee of Lumen Prize. Her creations have been shown at multiple places including Fort Mason Art and Culture Center in San Francisco, New York Live Arts, Mana Contemporary in New Jersey, IAC Building in New York, and Gallery Max in New York. She was part of the SFPC Recode project that has been presented at the Day for Night Festival in Austin, Sónar+D 2017 in Barcelona, and Google I/O in San Francisco.
She is an alumae of NYU ITP, School for Poetic Computation in New York, USA and Yonsei University in Seoul, South Korea. She was an artist-in-resident at Mana Contemporary’s New Media Program in 2018-2019.
