Yehwan Song
Technology Residency

Yehwan is a Korean-born web artist and designer. Yehwan's work centers on finding the discomfort hidden in the excessively comfortable web environments in order to address systemic inequality. The work reveals the inconvenience that users who do not belong to the main user group experience and criticizes the overgeneralization of user groups and the oversimplification of web interfaces that pursue excessive comfort and consistency only. Yehwan creates anti-friendly websites and satirizes web conventions by undermining the general understanding of web design and subverting common user-experience behaviors. She pursues diversity above consistency and efficiency.
