Shadow Exposed - iLight Singapore

 
Shadows of Revelation_1Rendering.png

Shadow Exposed was a piece created for the iLight Singapore Bicentennial Edition, an annual light festival in Singapore. The installation plays with the nature of projections being both moving images and a source of light. It invites visitors to interact with the installation using their own shadows to reveal or conceal layered images. On a large screen stretched along the Mist Walk, projections of images from Singapore through the ages will be interlaced. Depending on where the visitor stands, his/her shadow will reveal different layers that offer a glimpse into Singapore’s history and evolution. 

The installation was displayed outdoors in Marina Bay during the month of February in 2019. Created in collaboration with Edward Yang from Visual Feeder.

Dancing Human

A video installation for 150 Media Stream as the featured artist for August 2018

 

Dancing Human is a part of the artist Judy K Suh’s ongoing exploration of the construction and deconstruction of the moving image. Drawing inspiration from Eadweard Muybridge’s photographic studies of motion, the piece breaks down a dancer’s movement into a series of still images created from shooting on Super 8 and 35mm. It was conceived specifically for the unique structure of 150 Media Stream, utilizing the vertical screens to present the film strips in their entirety. Alluding to film editing, the strips were cut and organized for a visual rhythm rather than temporal rhythm. The advanced digital technology powering this video wall exhibits analog technology in all its imperfections—dusts, scratches, light leaks—and is now obsolete.

 

Dancing Human is produced at The Banff Centre

To the Moon and Back

A Projection Mapping installation created in Arteles Residency, Finland

 

The installation references early cinema history, drawing elements directly from George Meliès's A Trip to the Moon, the first narrative film. The piece brings the moving image off the flat wall, out of the frame, spilling onto the floor and other found objects as a life-size video collage. It is, at once, sculptural and temporal, therefore being tactile yet ephemeral simultaneously through the use of moving images on familiar objects. The video content is a mixture of live action video and animation, but blurring the boundaries of the two and shedding light on its own process of creation through the handmade/hand- drawn elements. Using techniques uniquely available to projection mapping, the piece offers a world that recalls the past and future at the same time, immersing the viewer into a magic-realist dream.

Chicagoscape: 122 Years Later

A projection mapping installation created for the Architecture Week celebrated at Soho House Chicago.

A merging of cinema and installation

The piece is loosely based on The Devil in the White City, set at the turn of the century during the World's Fair in Chicago. Much like that era, daring innovation and dark urban issues still exist side by side in today’s Chicago. This parallel serves as the conceptual backbone to this projection mapping piece, which will portray Chicago through both magnificent and brooding images of its architectural cityscape today as well as the historic characters Daniel Burnham and H.H. Holmes, reimagined for this setting.

The piece was displayed on October 5, 2015.
Here's a blog post about the process, written before the event:

Planet Eye

An immersive, projection mapping experience created for Illumination, 2017

The project stemmed from the common saying of "eyes are the window to the soul." I imagine the soul of a person to resemble something of a landscape containing both microscopic intricacies and astronomical vastness...past memories and ideas about the future. Both specific and ambiguous all at the same time.

Installed for Illumination 2017 in Chicago.

Horse in Motion

 

This is a piece inspired by Eadweard Muybridge's famous horse photographs, titled the same "Horse in Motion." Each horse drawing/sculpture is made with different material, and they capture a different moment in the horse's gallop. Strung together at 8 frames per second, it creates motion as in the last image. Each canvas was lit with digital projection, allowing for precise lighting and incorporating video.

Shown in solo exhibition at CICA Museum in Gimpo, S. Korea, 2017.
