Hello! I am Yaloo.
I am an active culture maker, a poetic gleaner, and a perpetual fresh-off-the-boat. I have recently started a project Yaloofarm (tentative title) about cornhead aliens and their new fancy tractors. The aliens are fascinated by the swagg of John Deere, the Ferrari of American agriculture and badass vastness and perfection of the Midwest’s farmland.
I completed my MFA (2015) and BFA (2011) from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago (SAIC) with a focus on digital image making & video installation. I was the first recipient of Lyn Blumenthal Memorial Scholarship by Video Data Bank (VDB). I have shown my works internationally, including Seoul (South Korea), Vancouver (Canada), Malmö (Sweden), Frankfurt (Germany), Brooklyn (NY), Seattle (WA), Columbus (OH), and Chicago (IL) since 2009.
