Seung-eon Yi is a film maker working with animation collaged media, based in Seoul and Chicago. She mainly describes in poetic form, the emotions and memories that she is deeply involved in, from the personal to the observational.

She hopes that people empathize with the stories in her works and can be comforted by them. She is interested in creating small ordinary stories of our daily moments, discovering tiny hidden values that might be overlooked, and delivering those values through her animations in diverse methodologies. By vividly visualizing subtle yet glimmering values she spots in our regular days, her animated films lead to a poetic contemplation and allow us to reconnect with the deeper emotions on which our relations actually depend.

Her first animated film A Place in Blue was screened in various international film festivals and now she’s working on a new project called The Things Left Behind.
