Show RCA work

Major project:


Bo Ram Chin’s work explores the light, taking illusive and fluted optical effects from material structure. Analysing the relationship between human and natural sources it inhabits; her collection, Circulation, aims to help modern people to be interested in the external environment.

Time goes on, even when we are depressed or have a hard day. The sun rises, the light is shining, the sun goes down, the light is weaker. When the moon becomes clear, a gentle glow light shows – then the sun rises again. This light cycle continues, time builds up, and we write our own stories in that time. Thus, in this long time of nature, we exist. We live in the cycle like light.

‘The light is everywhere, do not stay in the dark tunnel just alone. feel the energy and life force of this world. Then take the lively energy to you. Have the affluence of emotion.’


  • Bo Ram Chin's design process gathers up everything she sees, feels and experiences. She enjoys observing nature, cultural movements, social issues, and instinctive thinking with a different point of view.

    Bo Ram Chin’s work Circulation explores the relationship between human and light; which is inspired by death.
