Natural Individuals employs integrated VR and sculpture to investigate the spatial characteristics of collecting behavior and explore the lost identity of a collected object. VR image and sound interact with a viewer's gaze and show a virtual world created with internet image data. Sculptural objects reveal the insignificant morphological information of a particular object that was lost on the web.

Yunmi Her has been working with video installation and interactive art to explore the daily internal conflict of individual lives.  An individual’s sense of belonging is the dominant subject of most of her works. These works explore this subject by examining the environmental limitations, social systems, and relationships that contribute to the construction of individual identity. Her video work consists of recordings which depict incidental accidental daily encounters as well as interviews with people concerning their everyday lives. On the contrary, her video installations create dreamlike, ethereal moods which convey not only emptiness and loneliness, but also the senses of hope and satisfaction which arise in the cycle of one’s daily life. She is a graduate student in the DXARTS program at the University of Washington.
