ABOUT THE ARTISTS

Yeseul Song creates experimental sculptures, interactive installations, digital sketches, and performances that examine the fluid nature of human perception and its relationship to society, culture, and the environment. Her work combines computational technologies and the organic nature of craft materials to create unique aesthetics and experiences. During her MAD residency, she will expand upon her on-going project, Invisible Sculptures, which suggests more inclusive and creative views of the world through non-visual experiences that activate olfactory, auditory, and tactile senses. Song is currently a member of the New Museum’s NEW INC program and teaches at the Interactive Telecommunications Program (ITP) at New York University's Tisch School of the Arts. She has received Tisch’s Future Imagination Collaboratory Fellowship, Mana Contemporary’s New Media Program residency, ITP's Research and Teaching Fellowships, Engelberg Center’s Arts Fellowship, and iF Design Concept Award. She earned a MPS from NYU’s ITP program, a BA from Yonsei University, and is an alum of the School for Poetic Computation.

Jen Dwyer’s playful ceramic sculptures and otherworldly installations evoke dreams, fantasy, and the desire to escape to a world of one’s own creation. Through ceramics, painting, and installation, Dwyer creates a uniquely powerful, caring, and intimate feminine world, underscored by the artist’s study of Paleolithic talismans, the decadent Rococo aesthetic, and contemporary girlhood culture. During her MAD residency, Dwyer will create a new body of ceramic work, such as vases, urns, sculptures, mirrors, and candelabras, and weave her reoccurring influence of Paleolithic figurines within these works. Dwyer earned her MFA in Ceramics from the University of Notre Dame and her BFA from the University of Washington. She has shown locally and internationally. Recent exhibitions include a solo booth at Spring/Break Art Fair in New York City, Maxon Mills Gallery in Wassaic, and GAA Gallery in Provincetown.
