Jonas Sun

Master of Fine Arts in Studio, Sound

Born and raised in Beijing, China, Jonas Sun is an interdisciplinary artist and filmmaker who explores mundane activities whereby he reveals nuances of personality, especially of those who share multiple shifting identities. His works incorporate video, performance, documentation, soundscape composition, bodily installations, and more. He strives to provoke conversations around neglected experiences by inviting the audience to participate in his subjective and sensory exploration of themes such as healing, memory, selfhood, etc. while prompting awareness of the social influences that shape those values. At the end of the day, Jonas believes that living is an art form and everyone is an artist whose voice deserves to be respected and listened to, starting with themselves.
