Playing with Light and Space: A Conversation with Soo Sunny Park
by Jan Garden Castro

Soo Sunny Park’s light-filled installations are simultaneously visceral and immaterial. They encourage viewers to explore the sensual effects of light and shadow, geometry, the natural landscape, and the wonders of physics. Her 2007 exhibitions included solo shows at the Fire House Gallery in Burlington, Vermont, the Knowlton School of Architecture in Columbus, Ohio, and Reeves Contemporary in New York City, as well as group shows at the American Academy of Arts and Letters in New York City and the Cummings Art Center in New London, Connecticut. Her works in these shows, and at the Rotunda at Hopkins Center (2006) in Hanover, New Hampshire, intermixed common objects like string and transparent plastic cups with industrial design materials. Educated at the Columbus College of Art and Design and Cranbrook Academy of Art, Park is an assistant professor in the studio art department at Dartmouth College.
