A Young Kim

MA work

My work plays with systems and narratives. I re-author narratives by applying systems taken from various disciplines – science, art, music, literature, etc. – to explore a range of extreme ideas. By establishing a poetic link between systematic and artistic experimentation, new narrative forms and human consciousness arise through a whole new dimension of meaning. I set systems that write stories, form structures and create visuals by themselves. Ideas, concepts and systematic performances form and unite in the same body. If one of them is missing, nothing can exist as a communication production.
