The IEA was joined by Heejin Jang, from New York City, over the week of April 10th, 2017. Heejin received her MFA in painting at Kookmin University in Seoul, South Korea in 2011 and an MFA in New Genres at the San Francisco Art Institute in 2013. Her work manifests itself in the forms of experimental video art and live performance. Distorting ambient field recordings and found footage from the Internet, Heejin creates reverberating forces that gets one lost in the echoes of invisible itineraries to the outer world.

During her time at the IEA, Heejin spent much of her time in our time media studios gathering new resources for her work. In particular, Heejin processed a lot of recordings from her library and live video through the MVIP and edited these compositions through the Panisonic 4K mixer. A duckling also made a cameo in her recordings. Heejin was able to put together a single channel piece with the work she recorded here and plans to use the raw recordings in future work.

Below are some images from her residency:
