So Hyun Kim

MA work

Things are always in the right place at the right time. The problem arises when we look at them with a certain concern. We gather together here in the city. We wish to be in other places under the sunshine. But we walk on the same street that we stepped on yesterday.

In my work, the object transforms this place to those other places. The object employs natural phenomena in the solid boxes where we live, and this will be explored towards outside objects drawing continuous form. The object creates everyday rituals in our everyday tracking of its process.
