Soo Joo, a grad­u­ate of Rhode Island School of Design’s BFA program (’19 Furni­ture Design), creates natural analogs that allow people living in the urban built envi­ron­ment to feel connected to nature. She iden­ti­fies as a contem­po­rary Korean artist, as she is heavily influ­enced by tradi­tional Korean aesthet­ics based on the cultural value on living harmo­niously with nature. Natural analogs are non-living objects that have natural forms or use natural mate­ri­als. Her work ulti­mately aims to satisfy biophilia,” which is the innate human desire to feel connected to nature, one that is rooted in evolutionary history.
