Soorin Shin

I’m a South Korean artist working in 3D printing, media art and installation. I explore the ambiguous border between the digital and the physical world in my works, interrogating the relationship between technology and nature. My work is inspired by nature’s depiction in historical and cultural artefacts, especially those related to women.

Recently, I’ve been reinterpreting Norigae, a traditional Korean women’s accessory featuring natural elements, into a series of 3D printed sculptures, shining a light on its representation as a token of motherhood, handed down from mothers to daughters.

Born 1993 in Incheon, I’m now based in Glasgow founding Wobbly Digital, 3D printing & digital art studio. I obtained a BFA in Sculpture & Environmental Art from Glasgow School of Art in 2020 after studying Design at the Design Academy Eindhoven. Recently, my work was exhibited in ‘More Space For The People’, SaltSpace, Glasgow and ‘Wretched Light Industry’ online, supported by Creative Scotland.
