Chun has published two artist books: Blueprints (2017) with Silent Face Projects, and Valid From Until (2016) with Booklyn Press. Select venues of artist talks and teaching include the Museum of Modern Art, the Bruce High Quality Foundation University, NADA, the School of Visual Arts, Hunter College, Parsons the New School for Design in New York, and more.
