    White Bronze

    A tear from a cry was saved and an electron microscope scan was made of it. From that photo, a 3D form was made. This one is cast in white bronze. It is a solid heavy piece, the weight being really felt when held. (Collaboration with Rose Lynn Fischer)

    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.
