Yeseul Song is a South Korean born and New York based artist and educator. She examines the fluid nature of human perception and its relationship with the culture, environment and the future by creating artwork that challenges how we normally perceive and interact with the world. Her work combines digital technology and analog materials to create interactive experiences that invite viewers to be part of the work through bodily movements and creative expressions.

Her on-going project, Invisible Sculptures, subverts the visual dominance in the art world and our culture to enable more inclusive and creative views of the world. The project was recently presented as a solo exhibition at the Clayarch Museum in South Korea.

Yeseul is the recipient of the Museum of Arts and Design residency, the MAAF Grant by Wave Farm and New York State Council of the Arts (NYSCA), the Six Foot Platform residency by Brooklyn Arts Council and Dumbo, the Future Imagination Collaboratory (FIC) Fund fellowship, the Engelberg Center on Innovation Law & Policy fellowship, ITP Research/Teaching fellowships, and Mana Contemporary’s new media program residency. She was a member of the Art & Code track of New Museum’s NEW INC in partnership with Rhizome. She is the winner of iF Design Award and Communication Arts Interactive Annual. She teaches at NYU's Tisch School of the Arts' ITP/IMA.

She is an alumna of NYU Interactive Telecommunications Program (ITP), School for Poetic Computation (SFPC), and Yonsei University.
