Youngzoo Im have been tracking and connecting stories, interested in how science and religion arbitrarily interpret natural phenomena and the beliefs that emerge from the process of communicating them to the public.

Youngzoo works primarily with video, along with painting, installation, and book publishing, to examine absurd beliefs and their underlying structures. By paradoxically juxtaposing spiritual realms such as religion and superstition with scientific ways of thinking, attention to the similarities rather than the differences between the two. I start with a single image or sound, and as I research, I weave tradition, history, politics, science, and nuance into the story. Thus, my work simultaneously contains supernatural elements and (pseudo) scientific images or methods that are arbitrarily interpreted, appropriated, borrowed, and metaphorized.
