Soojin Chang (California, 1991)

is an interdisciplinary artist based in Glasgow.  Her works are in the media of video, sound, installation, and performance. They exist in visual worlds that occupy a mythical sense of time, driven by examinations of personal and national trauma, and a desire to rediscover lost space.
