Yeseul Song is a South Korean born, New York based artist who uses technology, interaction, and participation as art media. She uncovers creative possibilities of non-visual senses and creates new sensory languages using technology and interaction to advocate inclusive and equitable views of the world. With the belief that art needs to be accessible to everyone, she explores and occupies non-traditional art spaces to challenge commonly held ideas about access and accessibility of art. She’s best known for Invisible Sculptures (2018-2021), a series of non-visual experiential sculptures made of sound, warmth, air, smell, and thought. The whole series was shown at her major solo exhibition at Clayarch Museum in South Korea in 2021.
She has received residencies/fellowships from the Museum of Arts and Design (MAD Museum), More Art, Mana Contemporary, Engelberg Center on Innovation Law & Policy, Future Imagination Fund, and NYU ITP. She was an Art & Code track member of New Museum’s NEW INC in partnership with Rhizome.org, and her work has been supported by Wave Farm, NYSCA, Magnum Foundation, Brooklyn Arts Council, DUMBO District Improvement, and Embassy of the Republic of Korea, and more. Yeseul’s work won the iF Design Award and Communication Arts Interactive Award, and has been shown at the Smithsonian Hirshhorn Museum, Fort Mason Art and Culture Center, New York Live Arts, CultureHub, and Art in Odd Places, among others.
Yeseul is an Assistant Arts Professor at NYU ITP/IMA, and is an alum of ITP, School for Poetic Computation (SFPC), and Yonsei University.
