Jennifer Shin is an artist and maker based in Seoul and Pittsburgh. Mainly working with paper, food, and handicrafts, she explores the themes of home, memory, and ephemera through translations of found objects. She transforms ephemeral objects- whether to-do lists or food items- into sculptures that transcend their transient nature. Her time-consuming and laborious process of repetitive handcraft is a futile attempt at holding onto the values of these objects.
She is currently a senior at Carnegie Mellon University majoring in Art and minoring in Soft Technologies and Innovation and Entrepreneurship.
