The Mutes at the College Art Association Annual Conference

The Mutes, a film by ACT graduate student YaeJin Shin, has been selected for TRANSMEDIATION, a curatorial exchange and video art roundabout at this year’s College Art Association (CAA) Annual Conference in New York City.

The Mutes extends YaeJin’s ongoing investigation into different modes of communication and the development of visual structures. By silencing voices and focusing on the visual image of the characters’ faces, YaeJin tests the limits of the image and the voice and opens up the possibility of building a new language structure. At the same time, the film explores the relationship between the traces of lived experience, the living figure, and the reenactment of past experiences.
