Mimi Jung’s work examines multiple dimensions of self-preservation, particularly as it relates to private and public self-representation, and the ways in which those depictions are manifest through social and cultural mores. Her constructed forms, with their voids and translucencies, are fixed but never static; the viewer actively controls the experience of transit around and through them—reflecting inward on their own behaviors. In the end, Jung’s limning of space is reflexive, visible to those who are predisposed to see it.
Born in 1981 in Seoul, Korea, Mimi Jung received a BFA from Cooper Union and attended HGK Basel and Städelschule for postgraduate studies.
A good friend of mine brought Mandy Moore’s home to my attention for great reasons. It’s mid-century style, views, natural sunlight, furniture choice and the array of color.
The home is on a hill in Pasadena with views of San Gabriel mountains/valley, was built in the 1950s and designed by Harold B. Zook.
Mandy and her Fiance Taylor enlisted the help of architect Emily Farnham, interior designer Sarah Sherman Samuel, and landscape designers Terremoto to help bring the home up-to-date, customizing it to their needs.
