Hyeseul Song (b.1995, Seoul) explores how human environments relate to Nature in both the physical world and digital realms, utilizing photography, digital media, performance, and sculpture. She seeks invisible networks in the earth, and visualizes prominent patterns from the net. Song also takes great interest in the tensions and forces that affect materials, objects, and systems. Having studied architecture, she is moreover influenced by dwelling and land use.
Song uses stones and fungi as a metaphor to manifest the patterns in natural formations that are detected regardless of scale and subject. She uses digital modeling softwares to make quasi-organic forms that may seem random but have specific configurations. In order to mimic the generative process in nature, algorithms are made allowing for the exclusion of her intentions. Throughout her works, Song aims to trigger a shift in perception of space and human habitats by revealing hidden orders.
