In the year since her last release under Ghostly International Editions, Sougwen Chung has experienced the kind of explosive growth both creatively and professionally that leaves one feeling speechless. In addition to participating in our ADC event last year, she has participated in several digital art conferences and pushed the boundaries of her work beyond the two-dimensional to include sound, projection, light, and delicate 3D forms.
Today we’re thrilled to announce the release of four new editions by Sougwen, including a collaboration with Michael Cina (above left). Viewed together, the four works (all completed before the fall of 2012) conjure feelings of genesis, development, and release. We don’t know if that was Sougwen’s intention with this grouping, but it is a fine metaphor for where she finds herself today.
