aDaigneault #5 - U-Ram Choe

A Korean artist, he got his MFA from Chungang University in Seoul - where he currently resides and works. His work incorporates his interest in science/technology and they often deal with themes of biology or astrology. He gives many of them taxonomic classifications.

The kinetic element that most of his sculptures have make them extra-interesting to look at/interact with. His installations have a balance of elegance and technological motifs and to me they're super engaging b/cuz I mean I'm down for anything that's got a bunch of pretty lights on it. I could probably sit and watch those flowers open and shut for like a hour straight and not get bored.
