Can you trust something that you can't see? When an object does not have a form but is perceivable, does that object "exist"?
Yeseul Song is a new media artist who creates Invisible Sculptures, a series of sculptures that can be "seen" by senses other than vision. These sculptures are made of invisible materials such as sound, air, heat, smell, and thought, suggesting more inclusive and creative views of the world. During this talk, Yeseul will share her experiences creating Invisible Sculptures and other interactive art proiects.
Registration required for this free public program which will also be available via livestream. Attendees must show proof of vaccination and wear a mask indoors.
