Soyoung Shin is a visual artist. Working in video, photo, performance, and installation, she asks the audience to bring awareness to the ways in which first person narrative informs our overall perception. Many of her works are staged and restaged over long durations which allows themes to emerge gradually. Her practice is informed by her identity as a first generation Korean-American woman. She received a BS in Computer Science from the University of Washington.
Her work has been presented at Headlands Center for the Arts, the Korean Cultural Center Los Angeles, On The Boards, the Cynthia Woods Mitchell Center for the Arts, and Velocity Dance Center. This summer she is attending residencies at ACRE and the Montello Foundation. She hosts “Her Variety,” a radio show on KCHUNG.
