Charles B. Wang Center Chapel
Stony Brook University
Lecture takes place at 4PM
Christine will be performing Lautplan as part of the Spring Lecture Series at Stony Brook University.
Christine Sun Kim is an American sound artist who has been deaf since birth. She uses sound as an artistic medium to investigate and rationalize her relationship with sound and spoken languages.
With works that combine performance, installation, and video, Kim presents a visualized sound installation and a talk entitled LAUTPLAN, which was inspired by her experience of living opposite a church with bells that rang daily. She discusses how her notion of bells has evolved, incorporating images, videos, sound files, and stories of visiting the church she could see from her window.
Drawing from her own life to explore the physically expressive and communicative nature of sound, Kim finds new ways to bring art to the deaf community.
