Giving respect to fluidity and uncertainty as opposed to the static, Jiyon explores ideas of disorientation and displacement through different kinds of media. Being whimsical in terms of her search for logic, specificity of materials, architecture, cities, and perceptions, Jiyon positions herself as a shuttle between a specificity, a definite meaning, a firm land, and a poetic elaboration fueled by indeterminacy, abstraction, memory, and perception structures.
