Jin-Yong Choi is a New York-based artist born in South Korea. Based on the apocalyptic fiction that he wrote, Choi explores and experiments with tactile desires in sculptural forms and installations. Recently, he has been working on a project called Digital Shaman and creating shamanic objects.
By fabricating objects with intriguing materials, combining digital and non-digital images, and adding lots of details to them, he wants to create a unique experience that arouses visual pleasure and a heightened sense of materiality that can only be experienced in the real.
