WIES | Visualizing Invisibility

November 20, 2019, 12:30 - 1:30 pm

Room 159, Education Building, 1000 Bascom Mall

Bohyun Yoon

Artist and Associate Professor, Virginia Commonwealth University

In his work, Bohyun Yoon explores the conceptual properties of glass more than the actual, physical glass itself. He searches for ways to visualize its transparency, often experimenting with other materials to do so. He currently is expanding his study of visibility and perception by researching the illusion of human relationships. His work is in the permanent collections of the Smithsonian American Art Museum, West Collection, Tama Art University and Song Eun Art Space.

This event is part of the Wisconsin Ideas in Education Series, an interdisciplinary speaker series intended for educators and future educators across campus. It is organized by early career faculty members from UW-Madison's School of Education, with support from the Wisconsin Center for Education Research.
