Hola ~ I've spent most of the week working on my new installation, Ecdysis, for a shoot for Dazed and Confused Magazine. There are a few spots left for a small in-progress studio preview at 319 Scholes. from 7-9pm, Thursday March 6th. (tonight, last minute!) If you're in town and interested in coming by to see it, please email our producer John Seabright at john@johnseabright.com with the subject header "[Sougwen Installation]". Thank you!

Alpha-ville was fun. Thanks the other speakers including Eno Henze, Onformative, Field, Hellicar & Lewis, Kokoro & Moi, Stefanie Posavec, Shantell Martin and Quayola. Congrats to Carmen and Estela for putting on such a fine event. Lastly, to all who came out for my talk: thank you for coming and for the thoughtful conversations after the event.

Reviews: 

Sougwen Chung can only be described as a true polymath. Guiding us through her intricate practice, she seemed to be incredibly talented at just about everything you could point a cursor/pen/violin bow at. Combining organic, hand drawn illustrations with projected motion graphics and ambient lighting to create magnificent installations, Sougwen is a true multi-media artist. I loved her obsessive approach to drawing, a response to what she called digital fatigue. Having grown up “on-screen”, she also raised an interesting question regarding the role of CMND+Z and it’s potentially negative effect on the creative process. ”

- excerpt of review from Bob Wilson of Signal Noise

"It was clear that many of the speakers were experiencing a need for their work to connect on a level beyond a screen or interface, to return to a kind of physicality and to be brought back into the ‘real’. As Sougwen Chung so eloquently put it “The screen is not the medium, we are.”"

- excerpt of review from Artists and Algoriths writer Gemma Carr

I am speaking next at SXSW on March 8th, FITC Amsterdam on Feb 28th and FITC Toronto on April 27-29.
