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.

Prélude 
2012

https://vimeo.com/43455127 Étude Op. 3, No.2 of 4
form studies
sougwen.com


————————————

Prélude is the second video in Optogenesis (Étude Op. 3), a series of sculptural light installations. The title is inspired by the concept of Optogenetics, the emerging field of neuroscience concerning itself with the triggering of memory with light, and genesis, the coming into being from a point of origin.

-

In Prélude, light is projected onto an angular form, following an abstract narrative. Beginning with an initial beam of light, ( order; a central and clear point of origin), shifting into multiple beams in space ( disruption), transforming into an organic current ( direction; forming identity /movement), and resolving in shattering prisms ( dissolution; ecstatic form).

-

The sculptural piece on which the light is projected is formed from one flat rectangular plane. The folds of the plane function as its memory; its structure is formed by the direction and design of these impressions.

-

The form is revealed by illumination, taking on shifting visual characteristics depending its the point in the narrative. The interplay of material and immaterial creates distortions within the geometry of the piece, evoking a surprising dimensionality. The projected piece is a visual metaphor for memory an evolving and dynamic process, made up of many distortions.
