Yeon Jin Kim, artist and filmmaker, lives in New York City and is originally from South Korea. She constructs miniature models and characters from cardboard, paper, and other materials, as props for narrative videos filmed with a hidden camera installed on a tiny train that navigates the drawings and constructions. Kim teaches at Fairleigh Dickinson University and exhibits nationally and internationally.
Ted Lott is an artist, designer and craftsperson based in Cooperstown who believes that objects can tell us a story about those who made and used them. Adopting these stories, each piece gives that history a literal and proverbial home. His work encompasses sculpture, architecture, furniture, and public art, and has been exhibited in museums and galleries across the country.
