Current Harvestworks Artist in Residence Bohyun Yoon is a glass blower who fabricates unique glass instruments. The instruments are played by the artist and by other trained participants for public performance. Yoon is interested in having his instruments played by people of all ages.
He has always been fascinated by the material of glass and has explored it with vibrating sound and physical alterations. This has led him to experiment with the invisible visible.
His residency project at Harvestworks involves art making with glass and multiple channel audio systems.
