Hyung Seok Jeon MFA ’17

Filed under:

Underwater New York, a digital arts project run by Nicole Miller MFA ’09, Nicki Pombier Berger MFA ’09, Nicole Haroutunian MFA ’08, and Helen Georgas MFA ’09, is producing A Held Posture. A Held Posture is a solo performance by multi-disciplinary artist and filmmaker Hyung Seok Jeon MFA ’17. The piece explores the image impulse of sinking into the deep ocean. What would you see when you get to the bottom? Through a visual investigation of the abyss, the piece explores the sensation of falling and the experience of generational loss. Formal experiments, including puppetry, a live video feed, and a soundscape created with wireless headphones, guide the audience into the intimate and minimal space within the self. Performances will be held the first weekend in January at Theaterlab (357 W 36th St, New York). Tickets available online.
