Sangjun, Yoo is a graduate student in DXARTS Ph.D program at the University of Washington. He holds MFA in Art with honors from the State University of New York at Buffalo and two BFA degrees in Design and Technology at Parsons the New School and Multimedia Design at Hansung University in South Korea. He has four years of working experience at the global design agencies, including MTV. Sangjun’s work has been most influenced by his experiences of travel, which have included media-art certification at the Academy of Media Arts in Cologne in Germany, also artist’s residencies in New York City and Buffalo. These experiences have inspired the strain of his current work in installation and new media art, which is influenced by phenomenology and infused with an account of existence.
Sangjun regularly exhibits his work internationally, with international group exhibitions including those in South Korea, Japan, New Zealand, and Germany amongst others. The artist’s solo and group exhibitions have among them those at Kobe Biennale 2013 in Japan, Zentrum fur Kunst Medien in Karlsruhe, Germany, Culture Hub Art & Technology Center in NYC, Governor’s Island International Art Fair, FILE2015 in Sao Paulo, Brazil and Kumho Art museum in Seoul. His work has also been featured in multiple reviews, such as The Creator’s Project, FastCo-Design, Frame Magazine and broadcasted media.
