Berlin based artist Seo Hye Lee will be discussing her artistic journey of interpreting sound through audio and visual installations. Beginning from her background in illustration and more recently merging into installation art, she explores her experience of hearing loss and the unique perspective on the world a cochlear implant brings. Incorporating the use of sculpture, technology and illustration, Lee creates pieces by combining these elements with her ongoing research of our individual experiences of sound. During the talk, parts of her research into examples of assistance with hearing loss will be shared by looking at advances in technology such as apps which address making everyday situations more accessible. Lee will also share her experience of exploring her identity as a person with CI and the value that can come from learning to embrace our own sonic identities.
