Miyoung Song creates light sculpture media installations that transport the viewer into another universe where constructions of architectural and sculptural form interplay with light to explore our perception of the physical and emotional realm.

Her work has subsequently been featured in the New York Sun, New York Post, News Day and Globe and Mail in Canada.
