    Eliciting empathy through anthropomorphizing familiar objects by making them move and giving them a struggle is the focus of Jae Song’s practice. These objects are set in surreal scenes with other defamiliarized objects to create a possibility of a narrative that never quite completes, enticing the viewer to stay a little longer in hopes for them to find joy with the uncertainty.
