Here is a collection of installations I have created and shown. My installations usually tend to be composed of light and sometimes sound.

This neon installation took inspiration from a culmination of events, including the Hawai Missile Alert text message that went out to everyone on the island at the beginning of 2018. Add in personal experiences with heartbreak, and memories of AOL Chat, mobile portals/WAP sites on flip phones - et voila! You have TTFN.
This Is Not A Drill seeks to contrast uncomfortable and uneasy feelings about the future with pleasant and safe memories of the past. It does this by combining nostalgic imagery with nuclear themes.
This collection of illustrations (showcased as projections) was birthed out of nuclear tensions between North Korea, South Korea, and the United States. It was created in 2018 shortly after Hwasong-15 (the first Intercontinental Ballistic Missile) was successfully tested. Within weeks of proving to the world that North Korea can indeed fire nuclear weapons at anyone and anytime - everyone in Hawaii received a text alert that a missile was incoming.
My work was inspired by these real-life events. After creating these pieces, I was invited to showcase my illustrations and video art at the CICA Museum in South Korea.
