Bohyun Yoon

When South Korean designer Bohyun Yoon first arrived in the US he had communication issues as English was not his native language. The solution, Mirror Mask.

“Observing people’s faces and gestures helped my understanding, and I started to inquire and develop a project about non-verbal communication. In Mirror Mask, I focused on the concept, where I questioned how we are universally able to communicate with our body regardless of race or language. This mirror shows more angles of the face so that it helps communicate and exaggerate our facial expressions to one another.”
