Sangjun, Yoo is a candidate in Digital Arts and Experimental Media Ph.D program at the University of Washington. He holds MFA in Art from the State University of New York at Buffalo and two BFA degrees in Design and Technology at Parsons the New School in New York City and Multimedia Design at Hansung University in South Korea. He has four years of working experience in 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 multiple locations. 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 the lived experience.
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 broadcast media.
