For the 2007 Redux Summer Artist in Residence, artist Si Jae Byun continued her elaborate stop-motion video animations, drawings, and inflatable installations that were exhibited in both of the Redux Galleries. In addition, the artist was present to greet and speak with the public about her ideas, process, and previous artistic experiences during her residency from June 11- July 7 2007.

The artist also taught a Stop-Motion Animation class at Redux on June 26, 27, 28 from 6-9pm.

The work of Si Jae Byun often revolves around the artist’s childhood experiences, focusing on inner conflict from social experiences which are communicated to the viewer through the interactivity of her pieces. Using characterized images of human organs and videos that incorporate the artist’s own body, Si Jae Byun creates vibrant youthful works using multiple materials to achieve her diverse ideas.
